Of all modern notions, the worst is this:
Domesticity is dull. Inside the home, they say, is dead decorum and routine; outside is adventure and variety. The truth is that the home is the only place of liberty, the only spot on earth where a man (ahem, and a woman) can alter arrangements suddenly, make an experiment, or indulge in a whim. The home is not the one tame place in a world of adventure; it is the one wild place in a world of rules and tasks.
G. K. Chesterton
