Marmee-isms #5 ~ Keepers of Hearts & Souls

"To outsiders, the 5 energetic women seemed to rule the house, & so they did in many things; but the quiet scholar, sitting among his books was still the head of the family, the household conscience, anchor, & comforter; for to him the busy, anxious women always turned in troublous times, finding him, in the truest sense of those sacred words, husband & father.

"The girls gave their hearts into their mother's keeping, their souls into their father's; & to both parents, who lived & labored so faithfully for them, they gave a love that grew with their growth, & bound them tenderly together by the sweetest tie which blesses life & outlives death."

Chapter 24
