About this Quote

This quote by Pearl S. Buck speaks with the intricacy of motherhood. It acknowledges that moms reveal their love in various methods, which in some cases those ways can be contradictory. Some moms show their love through kisses and hugs, while others show their love through discipline and scolding. However both of these expressions of love stand and essential. Buck is recommending that mothers often integrate both of these techniques, and that both are needed for a healthy relationship. This quote is a suggestion that motherhood is not a one-size-fits-all experience, and that each mother-child relationship is unique. It is also a suggestion that no matter how a mom reveals her love, it is still love.
