Parent Love Sayings and Quotes: The love of a father and mother are the greatest treasure of every child. It is a sincere, unconditional love, ready for anything. Because a mother or father is not afraid of sacrifices just to see their children smile; what they wish is to grow serene, happy and fulfilled.

And the share of love does not end, but is transmitted.
