Who is anonymous mother?

Famous quotes containing the words anonymous and/or mother:

    Men, my dear, are very queer animals, a mixture of horse- nervousness, ass-stubbornness, and camel-malice—with an angel bobbing about unexpectedly like the apple in the posset, and when they can do exactly as they please, they are very hard to drive.
    Oh, England. Sick in head and sick in heart,
    Sick in whole and every part,
    And yet sicker thou art still
    For thinking that thou art not ill.
    —Thomas Henry Anonymous (1825–95)

    This mother needs happy, reputable children, and that one needs unhappy ones: otherwise she cannot show her kindness as a mother.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
