Potent Quotable, 5-8-11


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

Grown don’t mean nothing to a mother.  A child is a child.  They get bigger, older, but grown?  What’s that suppose to mean?  In my heart it don’t mean a thing.  ~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987
