"[To become Christian] involves, at least, discipline, inconvenience, and discomfort: but here as hereafter the alternative to hell is purgatory." (Love me a good Anglo-catholic--R)
" . . . so far has our notion of what is natural become distorted, that people who consider it 'unnatural' and therefore repugnant, that a person of either sex should elect a life of celibacy, consider it perfectly 'natural' that families should be limited to one or two children. It would perhaps be more natural, as well as in better conformity with the Will of God, if there were more celibates and if those who were married had larger families."
"Might one suggest that the kitchen, the children and the church could be considered to have a claim upon the attention of married women? or that no normal married woman would prefer to be a wager-earner if she could help it? What is miserable is a system that makes the dual wage necessary."
T.S. Eliot, Christianity and Culture
