Catalyst Quotes

Compiled by Alex Pena ~ ‘Catalyst’: “to spark, to ignite, energize, mobilize; something that accelerates a reaction (DDI)." Thought-provoking & motivational quotes and stories for you to read, reflect on and move forward in making creative and positive changes in your life.


“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”    (Washington Irving)


“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world.  It knows no law, no pity.  It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”    (Agatha Christie, The Hound of Death)


“But there’s a story behind everything.  How a picture got on a wall.  How a scar got on your face.  Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking.  But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”   (Mitch Albom, For One More Day)


“As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another.  My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true.  She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart.  I cannot now imagine a life without her.”   (Kristin Hannah, Summer Island)


“When you look into your mother’s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.”    (Mitch Albom, For One More Day)
