Quote Of The Day

I am quite sure that to be fearless is the first requisite for a woman; everything else that is good will grow naturally out of that, as a tree has leaves and fruit and grows tall and full provided its roots have a good hold of the ground.  Bring her up to be fearless and unintimidated by frowns, hints, and conventions, and then she will be full of mercy and grace and generosity.  It is fear that turns women sour, sly, and harsh to their neighbours.  
 ~ Sylvia Townsend Warner

Amen to this! My mom raised 4 daughters to speak their minds, vote as often as possible, ask for help when the job is too big or messy and never back down.
Thanks for reminding me of her!
