Okay, so I only read the sections on womanhood and motherhood in this book, but I loved them. I found it because Elder Henry B. Eyring cites it as the source of his views on womanhood and motherhood.

Henry B. Eyring learned how to treat women from this book (ref. I Will Lead You Along: The Life of Henry B Eyring.) Want to read. Want my sons to read to learn the reverence, sacredness and tenderness with which women should be treated. Want my girls to read to learn what treatment they deserve and help their confidence, power and self worth to give them the strength of mind and body to stay away from ill treatment.

“A man may possess a profound knowledge of history and mathematics; he may be an authority in psychology, biology, or astronomy; he may know all the discovered truths pertaining to geology and natural science; but if he has not with this knowledge that nobility of soul which prompts him to deal justly with his fellow men, to practice virtue and holiness in his personal life, he is not truly an educated man.

Character is the aim of true education; and science, history, and literature are but means used to accomplish the desired end. Character is not the result of chance work but of continuous right thinking and right acting.”

“And what is true education? It is awakening a love for truth; giving a just sense of duty; opening the eyes of the soul to the great purpose and end of life. It is not so much giving words, as thoughts; or mere maxims, as living principles. It is not teaching to be honest, because 'honesty is the best policy'; but because it is right. It is teaching the individual to love the good, for the sake of the good; to be virtuous in action because one is so in heart; to love and serve God supremely, not from fear, but from delight in his perfect character.” 26 likes
