Quotes: RL Dabney

…when the mother shall have found another sphere than her home for her energies; 
when she shall have exchanged the sweet charities of domestic love
 and sympathy for the fierce passions of the hustings (i.e., the political arena); 
when families shall be disrupted at the caprice of either party, 
and the children scattered as foundlings from their hearthstone,
–it requires no wisdom to see that a race of sons will be reared nearer akin to devils than to men. 
In the hands of such a bastard progeny, without discipline, without homes, without a God, 
the last remains of social order will speedily perish, 
and society will be overwhelmed in savage anarchy.

R.L. Dabney
