Shoe and Mother Quotes Shuffle
God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers
~ Rudyard Kipling


Cinderella, I really do like. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good, hard-working gal. And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end, and I'm a big shoe girl
~ Amy Adams


Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life
~ Sophocles


I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes
~ Oprah Winfrey


Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children
~ William Makepeace Thackeray


You want to fall in love with a shoe, go ahead. A shoe can't love you back, but, on the other hand, a shoe can't hurt you too deeply either. And there are so many nice-looking shoes
~ Allan Sherman

One of the most endearing things about a woman is her passion for shoes. I was always happy when my wife bought a new pair!

I sometimes wonder why every holiday, including Mother's Day, is seen as an opportunity for businesses to have a sale.

Your blog is such a happy place to come to. I smiled at your haiku. I don't particularly love shoes, but at my age am constantly seeking the most comfortable. I enjoyed the quotes. Thanks for this little bit of fun. Happy Mothers Day.
