“All true children of God have God for their father and Mary for their mother; anyone who does not have Mary for his mother, does not have God for his father. This is why the reprobate, such as heretics and schismatics, who hate, despise or ignore the Blessed Virgin, do not have God for their father though they arrogantly claim they have, because they do not have Mary for their mother. Indeed if they had her for their mother they would love and honour her as good and true children naturally love and honour the mother who gave them life.”
--Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, #30
Let us not imagine that we obscure the glory of the Son by the great praise we lavish on the Mother; for the more she is honored, the greater is the glory of her Son. There can be no doubt that whatever we say in praise of the Mother gives equal praise to the Son.” (“Non est dubium, quicquid in laudibus matris profermius, ad filium pertinere.”)
--Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Father and Doctor of the Church, Horn. 4, Sup. Miss.
“If anyone does not wish to have Mary Immaculate for his Mother, he will not have Christ for his Brother.”
--Saint Maximilian Kolbe
“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.”
--Saint Maximilian Kolbe
“No one will ever be the servant of the Son without serving the Mother.” 
--Saint Ildephonsus, Bishop

”It is impossible to save one's soul without devotion to Mary and without her protection.”
--Saint Anselm, Archbishop and Doctor of the Church

”I have great doubts about the salvation of those who do not have special devotion to Mary.”
--Saint Francis Borgia

”A man is no true Christian if he has no devotion to the Mother of Jesus Christ.”
--Saint John Eudes

“If anyone does not believe that Holy Mary is the Mother of God, he is severed from the Godhead. If anyone should assert that He passed through the Virgin as through a channel, and was not at once divinely and humanly formed in her (divinely, because without the intervention of a man; humanly, because in accordance with the laws of gestation), he is in like manner godless.”
--Saint Gregory Nazianzen – Archbishop of Constantinople, Father, and Doctor of the Church
