Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world a mother's love is not.
My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Whenever I'm with my mother, I feel as though I have to spend the whole time avoiding land mines.
Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.
I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his.
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never.
The theme of LABA 2013-2014 is MOTHER.
We’ve all got opinions about mothers. She is someone we mythologize, demonize, adore and abhor. This year we will engage in a deep exploration of the mother figure, examining the enormous symbolic gravity she holds in classical Jewish texts.
We will witness the mother as heroine, the mother as villain, the mother as creator of life and the mother as destroyer. We will look at all these women in the Jewish canon, and the mark they left on our collective cultural memory.
Stay tuned for the journal and LABAlive events, all about MOTHER.
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.' 20 And the man called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. 21 And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them. Genesis, Chapter 3
