I bought this not long after my mother died. Though reading it did not take away the pain, it helped me remember my mother in different ways by triggering various memories in my head. And that gave me a lot of comfort, being able to remember her.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517229404, Hardcover)

Reflecting on the timeless and precious nature of teh mother-daughter bond, Mothers and Daughters celebrates that special relationship, drawing on quotations from times gone by, and from modern sources, to rejoice in the love and unshakable strength of sisterhood that mothers and daughters share. With poetry, memory, proverb, and wit, contributors from Emily Dickinson to Madonna, Louisa May Alcott to Maya Angelou, revel in their tales of motherhood and mothers—creating a warm-hearted, soul-strenghthening collection that is the perfect gift for anyone who has ever been—or even knows—a mother or a daughter.

I've never felt anything like it in my life, it's an amazing love.
Gwynneth Paltrow, on her daughter Apple

What do girls do who haven't any mothers to help them through their troubles?
—Louisa May Alcott

Mother is food; she is love; she is warmth; she is earth. To be loved by her means to be alive, to be rooted, to be at home.
—Erich Fromm
