Mothers

Ever since my daughter was born, I feel the fleetingness of time. And I don’t want to waste it on getting the perfect lip color.
Madonna

In the childhood memories of every good cook, there’s a large kitchen, a warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom.
Barbara Costikvan

Your children will nurse at the breast of your wisdom and draw it out through your conversation. Make sure that this milk is free of contaminants like bitterness, envy, pettiness or vulgarity.
T.D. Jakes

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.
Rajneesh

Some fear that if parents start listening to their own wants and needs they will neglect their children. It is our belief that children are in fact far less likely to be neglected when their parents’ needs – for support, for friendship, for decent work, for health care, for learning, for play, for time alone – are being met.
Wendy Sanford

Help Others

Use power to help people. For we are given power not to advance our own purposes, nor to make a great show in the world, nor a name. There is but one just use of power, and it is to serve people.
George Bush

Very few burdens are heavy if everyone lifts.
Sy Wise

The man who keeps busy helping the man below him won’t have time to envy the man above him.
Henrietta Mears

You have the power to make someone’s day.
Dan Zadra

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
Emily Dickinson

Finding Contentment

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you don’t have; remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.
Epicurus

Contentment is achieved only in the absence of envy.
Tim Kimmel

More than once I heard Mother say, if we couldn’t be happy here in this house, we’d never be happy anywhere.
Henry Ford

To be content with what we possess is the greatest and most secure of riches.
Cicero

He who is not contented with little will never be satisfied with much.
Thomas Brooks

The Power of Humility

Those who first accept the silence of obscurity are best qualified to handle the applause of popularity.
Charles Swindoll

Keep a low profile. If you’re any good, people will talk about you.
Lou Holtz

The humble man feels no jealously or envy. He can praise God when others are preferred and blessed before him. He can bear to hear others praised while he is forgotten.
Andrew Murray

When people tell me I could be the best athlete there is, I just let it go in one ear and out the other. There is always somebody out there who is better than you are.
Bo Jackson

Humble people are confident, yet they seek to serve others as well as themselves. They are aware that fulfillment is directly related to building up and encouraging others. Because of this attitude, others are naturally drawn to humble people.
