Noble Women

Portrait of a Noble Woman

"I believe women come nearer fulfilling their God-given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America. It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second-rate novel filled with filth. It is a far, far better thing in the realm of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultramodern. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith. The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right that socially correct."

~ Peter Marshall, U.S. Senate Chaplain from 1946-48, during the presidency of Harry Truman

This post makes me think of a quote from Euripides. "A rare spoil for a man is the winning of a good wife. Very plentiful are the worthless women." Good post!

Hello. I have read this many times and it always hits the spot! If we would only stop being so concerned with the stuff that will never really impact a heart or a mind or eternal destiny!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!
Blessings, Roxy

Yes, surely we need to have eternity always on our minds instead of other things!
