A Lofty Challenge for Mothers


"Treat a man as he appears to be, and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be."

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(1749 - 1832)

  1. I have found this to be very true. I have heard many women complain that their husbands are incompetant. Once I came under the authority of my own husband, becoming dependant on him, he rose in his calling as the provider. He is now more confident in his manhood and I am secure in being the "weaker vessel."

  2. Hi Amy. You know, like all quotes on this blog, I apply them to motherhood, but this one is especially true in marriage. Thanks for stopping by!
