{inspire} a Mama’s life


o be Queen Elizabeth within a certain area, 
deciding sales, banquets, labours, and holidays;

 to be Whitely within a certain area,
 providing toys, books, sheets, cakes, and books; 

to be Aristotle within a certain area
 teaching morals, manners, theology and hygiene.

  I can understand how this might exhaust the mind, 
but cannot imagine how it could narrow it.

How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about the Rule of Three 
and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe?

  How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, 
and narrow to be everything to someone?

 No: A woman’s function is labourious because it is gigantic, 
not because it is minute.

– G. K. Chesterton
