My mother is fond of quotations and so I tend to remember them if I think she'll like them. Some I've sent to her recently are:

"Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles." - Charlie Chaplin

"We are the custodians of life's meaning" - Carl Sagan

From the master of pithy and quotable wit: "Only dull people are brilliant over breakfast." - Oscar Wilde

And, of course, Sir Francis Bacon, who said something I chose to carry with me always:

I have another Sir Francis Bacon quote:
"If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties."
