1. Marilla Cuthbert (Anne of Green Gables)
"Oh, Anne, I know I’ve been kind of strict and harsh with you maybe—but you musn’t think I didn’t love you as well as Matthew did, for all that. I want to tell you now when I can. It’s never been easy for me to say things out of my heart, but at times like this it’s easier. I love you as dear as if you were my own flesh and blood and you’ve been my joy and comfort ever since you came to Green Gables."
2. Mrs. Weasley (Harry Potter)
"NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!"
3. Mrs. March (Little Women)
"Money is a needful and precious thing,--and, when well used, a noble thing,--but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I'd rather see you poor men's wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self-respect and peace."
Mrs. March, or Marmee as her daughter's call her, is probably one of literature's most shining examples of the perfect mother. She is a beacon of emotional strength for her family during times of trouble, and encourages her daughters to marry for love rather than money (something that would have been considered progressive thinking during the Victorian era!). The love and dedication that the March sisters have for their mother only goes to show how truly wonderful Marmee is!
4. Mrs. Bennett (Pride and Prejudice)
"But I can assure you," she added, "that Lizzy does not lose much by not suiting his fancy; for he is a most disagreeable, horrid man, not at all worth pleasing. So high and so conceited that there was no enduring him! He walked here, and he walked there, fancying himself so very great! Not handsome enough to dance with! I wish you had been there, my dear, to have given him one of your set-downs. I quite detest the man."
6. Natalie Prior (Divergent)
"I love you. No matter what."
