There is no doubt that moms give some of the best advice. We asked the members of Women and Philanthropy at UConn for some of the best words of wisdom they’ve received from their moms.
“When you come to a crossroad in life, yield, and think about what the decision will mean.”
“A leopard doesn’t change its spots. Choose your friends wisely.”
“Follow your dreams and know that you can create the future you envision.”
“Everything is okay in moderation.”
“Choose your friends—not by the color of their skin, but by the color of their socks.”
-Mo Cotton Kelly
“Be graceful and kind.”
“Be good, be careful, and have fun.”
“Life is like living in a swamp, there will be crocodiles, keep swimming.”
This Mother’s Day, give a gift that could change lives in honor of the women who impacted yours.
