I said this is the greatest thing. Look at Me. This is the greatest thing to be the mother, to love everyone, that they depend on you for love and guidance, just for love. Such a great thing to feel, “Oh God, see how much I can give, how many cups I can fill.” It is such a great feeling. I wish you would know what a mother is and the motherhood you have to learn from your children and grandchildren and expand it to the whole universe. It's such a great thing a woman has.
