Outlook on Life

“If mothers could learn to do for themselves what they do for their children, we should have happier households. Let the mother go out to play! If she would only have courage to let everything go when life becomes too tense, and just take a day, or half a day, out in the fields, or with a favorite book, or in a picture gallery looking long and well at just two or three pictures, or in bed, without the children, life would go on far more happily for both children and parents.”

One thought on “Outlook on Life”

  1. I think all of those things are true, but I think that for most American women, living in the Oprah age, that the quote would more accurately be, “If mothers could learn to do for their children what they do for themselves, we should have happier households.”

    Just a thought.
