Esolen: The Mother

“The mother is a world of mystery. She loves; she does all kinds of interesting things throughout the house; she sings; she reads; she loses her temper; she may be as peaceful as a summer evening or a whirlwind of fury.  But she is always a mother, and her love for her child, even when it is shot through all the flaws of her character, will be human love. It may be far from perfect. But it will be something real.”

– Anthony Esolen, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child (p. 210)
