Good Passage from The Shepherd Ethan Cross

The Shepherd (Ethan Cross)

Garrety that said, ‘Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.’ I also like a quote from some psychologist who said, ‘Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.’ It’s a powerful thing, the love of a mother. I would guess that it’s just some primal instinct that mankind has yet to exploit, corrupt, or filter out—but it’s astounding, nonetheless. “In a world where everything else will fail you, where everything else falls away and doesn’t begin to live up to our expectations, a mother’s love remains true. I can think of no other bond or loyalty that is harder to break. I sometimes wonder how different my life may have been if my mother hadn’t died when I was young. I don’t remember much of her. She died along with my unborn baby brother due to a complication during her pregnancy. I don’t even remember her funeral or visiting her grave. But I remember her love.”
