Excerpt from Economics of the Hour

Carlyle told the world that there were two men 'and none other' whom he honoured and revered - the labourer and the scholar. Though I share that homage, there is one whom I must put higher, and for whom my reverence is fuller, deeper, and better deserved - the working mother.

There is none nobler than She. We glory, and rightly, in the soldier's courage, but beside that of the mothers and wives of those who labour, even it grows pale.

These fight their fiercest battles unaided. They are alone on an outpost duty that never ceases. Their own greatness of heart is their only force in support, the only reserves on which they can rely. But they have to be their own officer, as well as their own second line. In their homes, which is their workshop as it is their life, they have to prepare and to foresee, to encourage and to inspire, to heal and to defend.

But, alas! too often there is none to do for them what they do so naturally, so inevitably, for others. We men are more apt to demand comfort of body and of soul than to bestow it.

The isolation of the inner life of the working mother, coupled with its solitary, physical turmoil, makes her outlook very different from that of those whom she so deeply influences.
