This quote is from the autobiography of Elizabeth Stanton (one of the women incharge of the Seneca Falls):
"up to this time (motherhod) life had glided by with comparative ease, but now the real struggle was upon me. My duties were too numerous and varied, and not sufficiently exhilarating or intellectual to bring into play my higher faculties. I suffered with mental hunger which, like an empty stomach, is very depressing. Cleanliness, order, the love of the beautiful artistic, all faded away in the struggle to accomplish what was absolutely necessary from hour to hour."
I could have never said these sentiments so perfectly. Anybody else feel this way?
