    When judges steal themselves.

    So immense are the claims on a mother, physical claims on her bodily and brain vigor, and moral claims on her heart and thoughts, that she cannot ... meet them all and find any large margin beyond for other cares and work. She serves the community in the very best and highest way it is possible to do, by giving birth to healthy children, whose physical strength has not been defrauded, and to whose moral and mental nature she can give the whole of her thoughts.
    Frances Power Cobbe (1822–1904)

    Thy early smile has stayed my walk;
    But midst the gorgeous blooms of May,
    I passed thee on thy humble stalk.
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
