Elizabeth Goudge On Home-Making

. . . it was home-making that mattered. Every home was a brick in the great wall of decent living that men erected over and over again as a bulwark against the perpetual flooding in of evil. But women made the bricks, and the durableness of each civilisation depended upon their quality; and it was no good weakening oneself for the brick-making by thinking too much about the flood. ~ Elizabeth Goudge, Pilgrim’s Inn (Herb of Grace)
