“You may place upon the brow of a true wife and mother the greenest laurels; you may crowd her hands with civic honors; but, after all, to her there will be no place like home, and the crown of her motherhood will be more precious than the diadem of a queen.”
—Francis E.W. Harper, Enlightened Motherhood

“Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart.”

–Gordon B. Hinckley

“The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.” In blurring feminine and masculine differences, we lose the distinct, complementary gifts of women and men that together produce a greater whole.”

–Margaret D. Nadauld

“If for a while the harder you try, the harder it gets, take heart.  So it has been with the best people who ever lived.”
