Wisdom of the Ages 212

“Two very interesting early directions in life.
When I was a child we lived in a very remote and mountainous area. As soon as I was young enough to understand, my father would say to me: If I take you up bush, and you get lost, you always walk down hill, until you find a creek, and follow it until it becomes a river. When you get to a bridge that crosses that river, wait there for us to find you.
My mother would say to me: Women fought for the vote, women died for the vote – when you get old enough to vote, don’t you dare waste your vote!”
