Motherhood: to love & be loved in turn.

To care for your young means staying by your young, recognizing your young, and returning to your young again and again, even as your selfish, muttering self tells you, Hey, what about number one? A parent, a mother, must be drawn to her young, and the young must in turn be drawn to the mother, and the body and brain of a nurturing species must know how to love and be loved in turn.

-Natalie Angier, Woman page 303
