From the Daybooks ~ A Mother's Choice

"No mother has an easy time, and most mothers have very hard times, and yet what true mother would barter her experience of joy and sorrow in exchange for a life of cold selfishness, which insists upon perpetual amusement and the avoidance of care and which often finds its fit dwelling-place in some flat designed to furnish with the least possible expenditure of effort the maximum of comfort and luxury, but in which there is literally no place for children?"
~ Theodore Roosavelt
