Then take me on your knee, mother;
And listen, mother of mine.
A hundred fairies danced last night.
And the harpers they were nine. [ Mary Howitt ]
Oh, happy vantage of a kneeling knee! [ William Shakespeare ]
Stories first heard at a mother's knee are never wholly forgotten - a little spring that never quite dries up in our journey through scorching years. [ Ruffini ]
The instructions received at the mother's knee and the maternal lessons, together with the pious and sweet souvenirs of the fireside, are never effaced entirely from the soul. [ Lamennais ]
Education commences at the mother's knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends toward the formation of character. Let parents bear this ever in mind. [ Hosea Ballou ]
When we think of the tenderness, of the solicitude, of the protection, of the grace, of the charm, of the happiness, or at least of the consolation that woman brings to the life of man, one is tempted to speak to her only with uncovered head, and bowed knee. [ L. Desnoyers ]
No man ever stood lower in my estimation for having a patch in his clothes; yet I am sure there is greater anxiety to have fashionable, or at least clean and unpatched clothes, than to have a sound conscience. I sometimes try my acquaintances by some such test as this - who could wear a patch, or two extra seams only, over the knee. [ Thoreau ]
See a fond mother encircled by her children; with pious tenderness she looks around, and her soul even melts with maternal love. One she kisses on its cheeks, and clasps another to her bosom; one she sets upon her knee, and finds a seat upon her foot for another. And while, by their actions, by their lisping words, and asking eyes, she understands their numberless little wishes, to these she dispenses a look, and a word to those; and whether she grants or refuses, whether she smiles or frowns, it is all in tender love. [ Krummacher ]
