A  MOTHER'S INFLUENCE

MONTH ONE

"We fancy that God can only manage His world with battalions, when all the while he is doing it by beautiful babies.  When a wrong wants righting, or a truth needs preaching or a continent needs opening, God sends a baby into the world . . . perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother.  And then God puts the idea into the mother's heart, and she puts it into the baby's mind. And then God waits.  The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and thunderbolts.  The greatest forces in the world are babies."

--E.T. Sullivan

Seneca

"Every young thing attaches itself to what is nearest and grows to be like it."

Margaret Nadauld

"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." 

Margaret Eggleston

How to obtain a personality:

"By loving the beautiful, by reading the worth-while, by filling the mind with those things that are worth passing on, by cultivation of a cheery disposition, by striving toward high ideals."
