The Greatest And Most Important Business That Is Done

Instead of flowers and sparkles on this Mother's Day, I am sharing one of my favorite quotes.  These words were spoken by Sojourner Truth, from a lecture given in Iowa in 1872:
"We have many booby men in de land, and they came from weak women, who say, 'I've got all de rights I want'.  I tell you if want great men, you must have great mothers.  Why, children, rising babies is the greatest and most important business that is done.  How can a woman give brains to her baby when she hasn't got em herself."
Today is the day to honor the important business of being a mother.  Happy Mother's Day!
