|House at Sutton Coldfield by Ernest Newton. Before 1899|
-Ernest Newton, 1891
I found this quote while reading FLW's biography and it gave me pause. While I agree with the sentiment, ideally home life should be one of peace and contentment, it was most certainly written by a man who has never done laundry or scrubbed a floor in his life, hence his belief that this peace comes about simply and gently.
