"Thank God, O women for the quietude of your home, and that you are queen in it. Men come at eventide to the home; but all day long you are there, beautifying it, sanctifying it, adorning it, blessing it.
Better be there than wear a queen's coronet.
Better be there than carry the purse of a princess.
It may be a very humble home. There may be no carpet on the floor.
There may be no pictures on the wall.
There may be no silks in the wardrobe;
but, by your faith in God, and your cheerful demeanor,
you may garniture that place with more splendor
than the upholsterer's hand ever kindled."
