"We have ample warrant, by manifold evidence, for being sure for ourselves that the worth and happiness of life depend on just this--that in the strength which God gives and in the eagerness of His service, the will should ever be extending the range of its dominion, ever refusing to be shut out or overborne, ever restless in defeat, ever pushing on its frontier. Surely it has been the secret of some of the highest, noblest lives that have helped the world, that men have refused to make allowances for themselves; refused to limit their aspirations and effort by the disadvantages with which they started; refused to take the easy tasks which their hindrances might seem to justify, or to draw premature boundaries for the power of their will." -Francis Paget
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.
