Pro Uxore Mea

For my wife, who stays at home with Stella, when others don't understand:

The place where babies are born, where men die, where the drama of mortal life is acted, is not an office or a shop or a bureau. It is something much smaller in size and much larger in scope. And while nobody would be such a fool as to pretend that it is the only place where women should work, it has a character of unity and universality that is not found in any of the fragmentary experiences of the division of labour.

Chestertonian wisdom is frequently found among Hansoniana.
