"Nothing keeps the heart so fresh and young, saves it from bitterness and corrosion through cares and conflicts and disappointments in life, as the daily enjoyment of a happy home. May I always keep this in remembrance and do everything that lies in my power to make our home the happiest spot on earth for our children."
-From a Mother's Journal of 1856-1857

"Let France have good mothers, and she will have good sons." -Napoleon

Napoleon said one day to Madame Campan ; "the old systems of Education are good for nothing ; what is wanting to the proper Education of young persons in France ? " 
" Mothers" replied Madame Campan. 
This expression struck the Emperor, and led him to exclaim: " Ah ! that makes the whole system of Education ; we need mothers who know how to bring up their children."
