Heartwarming, inspiring, and often funny, this compendium of quotations will brighten Mom's day and make the perfect gift. From poets and politicians to comediennes and columnists, each person offers words of wisdom and delight that cover all stages of mothering. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis notes that "If you bungle raising your children, nothing much else matters in life, " while Roseanne Barr offers a more relaxed perspective: "I figure when my husband comes home from work, if the kids are still alive then I've done my job."
