The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word ‘Mother’,
and the most beautiful call is the call of ‘My mother’.
It is a word full of hope and love, a sweet and kind word coming
from the depths of the heart.
The mother is everything – she is our consolation in sorrow,
our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness.
She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness.
Kahlil Gibran (1912)
