    Many women cut back what had to be done at home by redefining what the house, the marriage and, sometimes, what the child needs. One woman described a fairly common pattern: “I do my half. I do half of his half, and the rest doesn’t get done.”

    I taught school in the early days of my manhood and I think I know something about mothers. There is a thread of aspiration that runs strong in them.

    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
