cura librorum

commonplace: fiction

“I want my daughters to be beautiful, accomplished, and good; to be admired, loved and respected,; to have a happy youth, to be well and wisely married, and to lead useful pleasant lives, with as littler care and sorry to try them as God sees fit to send. My dear girls, I am ambitious for you, but not to have you make a dash in the world — marry rich men merely because they are rich, or have splendid houses which are not homes because love is wanting. I’d rather see you poor men’s wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones without self-respect and peace.” – Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
