Mothers, be careful of your precious moments. Remember that your children are passing forward where they may be beyond your educating and training. You may be to them the very model of all that is good and pure and noble. Identify your interest with theirs.
If you fail in everything else , be thorough, be efficient here. If your children come forth from the home training pure and virtuous, if they fill the least and the lowest place in God’s great plan of good for the world, your life can never be called a failure and can never be reviewed with remorse. —The Adventist Home, p. 267
