"The noblest calling in the world is motherhood.
True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions.
She who can paint a masterpiece, or who can write a book that will influence millions, deserves the admiration and plaudits of mankind;
but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose immortal souls will exert an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have decayed or have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God."
~David O. McKay
