G.K. Chesterton Quote

"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-- English writer and Christian apologist.

This is a wonderful quote. As someone who began as a maths teacher - and then became a mother, I really appreciated it!

What a lovely quote. As mothers we need to be reminded of the positives of what we do.
