"Motherhood is at its best when the tender chords of sympathy have been touched."
"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."Paul Harris on George Washington
"The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children."Paul Harris on Jessica Lange
"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it."Paul Harris on Mark Twain
"Men are what their mothers made them."Paul Harris on Ralph Waldo Emerson
"My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso."Paul Harris on Pablo Picasso
"One's nativity is not of his own choosing, but whatever it may be, it is entitled to respect and all nations have honorable place in the world's family."
"Permanent superiority has never been realized by any nation in history. After the rise comes the fall."
"In the clashes between ignorance and intelligence, ignorance is generally the aggressor."
"The higher the general average of intelligence, all things else being equal, the less the disposition to be meddlesome, critical, and overbearing."
"To attempt to superimpose its views through the exercise of force, is seldom the part of intelligence it is frequently the part of ignorance."
