Mother is the word for God...



...on the lips and hearts of little children.

I first heard this quote (originally by Wiliam Makepeace Thackeray) while watching The Crow (1994) during the scene where Eric utters these special words to Darla to make her understand the precious gift of being a mother.

For me, it is a very special quote since its meaning is so true: mothers are indeed the centre of the world to a small child!
