Its Soul

Women, if the soul of the nation is to be saved, I believe that you must become its soul. ~Coretta Scott King

OH! I love it, I am going to add to my quotes page. Thanks you!

Lyrically speaking said...

We want to be saved but Bush is in the way, lol. This has a deep meaning, I feel there are a lot of strong women out there trying to make a difference in our world, but of course we have some jerks who gets in the way of progress and ruin it for us all.

Have a good weekend Miss Z

Yes, and I must also add what this great woman of history stated:

"The true worth of a race is measured by the character of it's women." ~Mary McLeod Bethune

I was raised by strong women so these quotes hit deep. Thanks as always.

barbara- cool. I love your blog, it's just so much fun!

lyrically- Amen, you said it! Yes, but we must dig in and not let them destroy everything, those jerks I'm referring to. I'll do my best.

stephen- even though, I've never met you, I can tell you have had strong support behind you and women to boot!

Peace to all.

Women, what can I say of us? We are certainly a strange lot.

We are that gender who would bear excruciating pain to deliver our babies.
We are that gender who knows how to do unconditional love. Autistic. Down syndrome. More.
We are that gender who would sacrifice comfort to breast feed our babies.
We are that gender who would sacrifice our careers to raise our kids.
We are that gender who would sacrifice sleep to nurse our loved ones.

We, women are the very souls, who understand the word 'sacrifice' fully.

Sure...we certainly can be that soul of the nation, we women!
