Mother's Day Quotes: 'Mom Candy' Book Offers Inspiration And Advice From Famous Moms

Funny And Profound Quotes For Mother's Day

If you're looking for great Mother's Day quotes to inspire you this year, Hillary Clinton, Amy Poehler, Natalie Portman and J.K. Rowling have you covered -- with a little help from biologist and former book editor Jena Pincott, who has just published a gorgeous new quote book for moms. The collection, called Mom Candy: 1,000 Quotes of Inspiration for Mothers, is filled with delightfully relatable musings from interviews, memoirs, poems and more by notable women.

"I cherry-picked passages as my toddler sat on my lap or nearby on her play rug. I dipped into novels and pored over databases while my daughter turned the pages of her board books," Pincott says in the introduction. "After finding a juicy passage, I'd stop and read to her... Looking back, I realize that tese were some of our first bonding moments over words and books."

The quotes are sorted into nineteen chapters, spanning time from "Beginning" to "Legacy" and tone from "Laugh" (Poehler's "Sleep is out ... tired is the new black") to "Lifesavers" (Jessica Lange's "The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness"). Check out some of the best quotes, on pages designed by the publisher, in the slideshow below, and find out more about Mom Candy here.
