Looking to fill that card with a special saying? We've got you covered.

Love takes on an endless different number of forms, but there's nothing quite like the bond of love between a mother and her child. You can see it on a mother's face when her baby takes his few first steps, you hear it in a baby's giggle in the throes of a tickle fight with her mom, and feel it fill a room when a mother dances at her son's wedding. It's a kind of unconditional love that can't be properly put into words.

Still, that doesn't mean that authors, musicians, poets and speakers haven't all tried to express what it means to be a mother and, in turn, to feel a mother's love. Just in time for Mother's Day, here are fifteen love quotes guaranteed to make mom smile, laugh and cry happy tears. (And don't forget to pin these ecards here or repin them from our Pinterest board.)
