Queen of the Home {15}

"Again, let me say that no wife can underestimate the influence
she wields over her husband
or the measure in which his character, his career, and his very destiny
are laid in her hands for shaping.
The sway which she holds of him is the sway of love,
but it is mighty and resistless.
If she retains her power, 
if she holds her place as queen of his life,
she can do with him as she will.
Even unconsciously to herself, 
without an thought of responsibility,
she will exert over him
an influence that will go far
in making or marring all his future.
If she has no lofty conception of life herself,
if she is vain and frivolous,
she will only chill his ardor,
weaken his resolution,
and draw him aside from any earnest endeavor."

~ J.R. Miller
