“The test of first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function”
F Scott Fitzgerald
the next line is… ” One should, for example be able to see things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise”…
I think all Mothers are of the highest of first-rate intelligence…. always juggling logic of the mind with the power of the heart…. and Very Determined.
