Quote by Cardinal Mermillod
A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.
This quote highlights the unique and irreplaceable role that a mother plays in a person's life. It emphasizes the depth of a mother's love and the incomparable bond formed between a mother and child. While others may come and go throughout one's life, a mother's presence and influence is unmatched and cannot be substituted by anyone else.
To me there is no more tragic sight than the average missionary. We have given so much, yet not the one thing that counts; we aspire so high, and fall so low; we suffer so much, but so seldom with Christ; we have done so much and so little will remain; we have known Christ in part, and have so effectively barricaded our hearts against His mighty love, which surely He must yearn to give His disciples above all people.
