-Meredith Gray-from ‘The Beauty of Motherhood’: I’d rather be a mother than anyone on earth Bringing up a child or two of unpretentious birth I’d rather tuck a little child all safe and sound in bed Than twine a chain of diamonds about my {carefree} head. I’d rather wash a smudgy face with round, bright, baby eyes Than paint the pageantry of fame or walk among the wise.
