“What for you is the essence of being a woman?

“Just being a woman is God’s gift that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother and is a woman. She shows a man what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman. “

That was the winning answer of Miss India Universe 1994, Sushmita Sen.

It is true that a woman is essential for the promulgation of our species and the continuance of life in our planet, but it takes a whole lot of woman to become a great mother.

Then perhaps a story that illustrates it — all the books in the libraries in the world wouldn’t even cut it.

In celebration of Mother’s day, we give you this special collection of quotes from famous sons and daughters that show how much Moms mean to them, and how we should see our mothers through their eyes.
