“The family state then, is the aptest earthly illustration of the heavenly kingdom...[The mother] is to rear all under her care to lay up treasures, not on earth, but in heaven. All the pleasures of this life end here; but those who train immortal minds are to read the fruit of their labor through eternal ages.”
Beecher, Catharine E. (Catharine Esther)

“There is nothing which has a more abiding influence on the happiness of a family than the preservation of equable and cheerful temper and tones in the [mother].”
Beecher, Catharine E. (Catharine Esther)

“Many persons imagine that, if they violate the laws of health, in order to attend to religious or domestic duties, they are guiltless before God. But such greatly mistake. We directly violate the law, "Those shalt not kill," when we do what tends to risk or shorten our own life.”
Beecher, Catharine E. (Catharine Esther)
