My mom always said, “You can do anything; your possibilities are endless.” She told me I was beautiful, worthwhile, talented, deserving of happiness, and the best daughter I could have asked for. Why am I sharing this with you? Because today's most popular trending topic is near and dear to my heart, and hopefully to yours as well: Mom Always Said. The Twitter-world, the Tumblr-verse, and the internet at large is full of quotes filled with motherly wisdom. I've picked out a choice few, along with some iconic mom-quotes from the movies, and at the end of it all, I want to hear what your moms always said, too!
Mothers are beacons of wisdom; they are kind, caring, and full of advice – often whether you want it or not. Observe:
rightnowjoej: “MOM ALWAYS SAID: 'Never talk to strangers' and here I am, on twitter.”
ObeyMyQuotez: “MOM ALWAYS SAID to be yourself & not worry about what other people think!”
TheTopBelieber: “MOM ALWAYS SAID 'do I look like i'm made of money?' Well, isn't that what m.o.m. stands for?”
AndrewJenks: “Mom always said the amount of time I watch TV, is the amount of time I have to read a book. #strictparents.”
tonksx7: “MOM ALWAYS SAID to be safe. Be strong.”
NadiraLBW: “Mom always said, think before you speak.”
That's some pretty awesome advice – although yeah, the internet does make it difficult not to talk to strangers.
Joan Crawford (allegedly) said, “No. Wire. Hangers!” Beverly Sutphin advised, “You can't wear white after Labor Day!” (And then she smacked a juror in the face.) Vivi Walker said, “Don't look at me in that tone of voice!” -- which I heard more than once myself. All remarkable pieces of wisdom, in their own way. Molly Weasley dispensed this wise opinion: "Just because you can use magic now does not mean you have to whip your wands out for everything."
Mothers have all kinds of pieces of advice for their babies. What did your mother always say? What's stuck with you for your whole life?
