Happy he
  With such a mother! faith in womankind
    Beats with his blood, and trust in all things high
      Comes easy to him, and though he trip and fall,
        He shall not blind his soul with clay.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Princess
         (canto VII, l. 308)

Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of children.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair
         (vol. II, ch. XII)

They say that man is mighty,
  He governs land and sea,
    He wields a mighty scepter
      O'er lesser powers that be;
        But a mightier power and stronger
          Man from his throne has hurled,
            For the hand that rocks the cradle
              Is the hand that rules the world.
      - William Ross Wallace, What Rules the World,
        written about 1865-66

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That is his.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde),
        Importance of Being Earnest (act I)

Sure I love the dear silver that shines in your hair,
  And the brow that's all furrowed, and wrinkled with care.
    I kiss the dear fingers, so toil-worn for me.
      Oh, God bless you and keep you, Mother Machree.
      - Rida Johnson Young, Mother Machree

Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.
      - Lin Yutang
