    That it should come to this,
    But two months dead, nay, not so much, not two,
    So excellent a king, that was to this
    Hyperion to a satyr, so loving to my mother
    That he might not beteem the winds of heaven
    Visit her face too roughly. Heaven and earth,
    Must I remember? Why, she would hang on him
    As if increase of appetite had grown
    By what it fed on, and yet within a month--
    Let me not think on't; frailty, thy name is woman--
    A little month, or ere those shoes were old
    With which she followed my poor father's body
    Like Niobe, all tears, why she, even she--
    O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason
    Would have mourned longer--married with my uncle,
    My father's brother, but no more like my father
    Than I to Hercules.

In all this cold and hollow world, no fount
Of deep, strong, deathless love, save that within
A mother's heart.

The bravest battle that ever was fought;
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the world you will find it not;
It was fought by the mothers of men.

We know that birth takes a woman from one place in her life to another. The birth of a child certainly does change her viewpoint of herself and I believe her viewpoint of the world.

Happy he
With such a mother! faith in womankind
Beats with his blood, and trust in all things high
Comes easy to him, and though he trip and fall,
He shall not blind his soul with clay.
