Large Careers

How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about [arithmetic], and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman's function is laborious because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. ~G.K. Chesterton

(Thanks to the gals at ClassEd for reminding me of this gem!)


  1. I've become so accustomed to Facebook that I actually looked for the "like" button.

  2. LOL! I've done the same thing, only I look for the 'Arrr, this be pleasin' to me eye' button, cuz I've got FB set on Pirate English.
