The Broad and Narrow


"How can it be a large career
to tell other people's children about arithmetic

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 laborious
because it is gigantic,

not because it is minute."




G. K. Chesterton

This quote makes me feel so much better about being a woman and a mother! Sometimes I get fed up with my God given role - terrible I know. But this reminds me of the impact I have!

Love Collette xxx
