Noble Womanhood

These quotes, compiled by Jennifer M. McBride, are largely about wifery and motherhood.  You may not share every opinion in them (I can’t say I do, in every detail); but they are worth considering.  Enjoy.

In the hands of noble womanhood, we can yet see – rising from the ashes of a broken culture – the glories of hearth and home, so that future generations will arise and declare its virtues once again.” ~ Beall Phillips in Verses of Virtue

 The rooms of a house may be stately and grand,

Their adornment a triumph of art

But beauty of home is the final result

Of the toil of an unselfish heart. ~ Author Unknown

Bear in mind that that woman is most queenly, who uses her wisdom and her strength for the benefit of those around her, shrinking from no duty that she should perform, but doing it cheerfully and well. ~ From The King’s Daughter and Other Stories for Girls

 

 …Even the most mundane tasks can be made beautiful when they are done with a glowing countenance, a joyful heart and a desire to honor God even in the way we dress. We are queens! What a difference it makes when we dress like royalty–no matter what our position in life. ~ Jennie Chancey 

 In every ideal home there exists an essence that diffuses its fragrance–the fine flower of noble womanhood, without which the house is a habitation, not a home. Alone under the ministering care of woman may the routine of daily life be relieved and varied and the course of the household made to flow free from friction. Caressed by her gentle touch, order ranges itself, beauty finds a dwelling place, and peace enters as an abiding guest. Preeminently it is woman that idealizes the home, and with her sweet refining presence, creates its atmosphere of serenity and content. ~ George H. Ellwanger

Yes, my oldest daughter has a big responsibility in helping care for our family. But here’s the difference: In our family, we verbally and physically exalt the blessing of children. Regardless of the diapers, the messes and the squabbles, we view this work as the most noble on earth. She understands that this work goes far beyond the physical demands; that no woman could hold greater power than that of helping shape an immortal life. ~ Kelly Crawford (www.heartsforfamily.com)

I long to accomplish great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker. ~ Helen Keller
