A Quote by George Eliot on children, men, needs, and women

I tell you there isn't a thing under the sun that needs to be done at all, but what a man can do better than a woman, unless it's bearing children, and they do that in a poor makeshift way; it had better have been left to the men.

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)
