"Probably a great deal of harm to ourselves and others is done by what we call our self-denials. 'I won't have you saving yer dirty sowl upon me.' said an Irish woman to her district visitor; and it is just possible that she expressed a law of life,--that we are not allowed to be good to others, or even to be good in ourselves, just for the sake of being good. Love and the service of love, are the only things that count." Charlotte Mason
A wee explanation: this website was created as a way to amplify the daily surprise of seeing glory in one small life. The notebook entries represented here are all selected from things actually lived and noted on paper in an effort to live the full life British educator Charlotte Mason so ably championed.
