Description

Excerpt from Professional Women Upon Their Professions That the imperfections are still both numerous and apparent I have the misfortune to be aware. Beside the object of reflecting current professional thought in a way that should rather suggest that thought than exhaust it, I have implied that I had another hope. And it was principally for the realisation of this other hope that I chose the conversational method, despite the difficulties that I knew must attend it. I had before me the image of some girl who has not yet found her niche in the world. The world is before her where to choose; but she would give much gratitude to anyone who would guide her in her choice. But somehow there appears to be no mentor at hand - no one even who can offer almost any suggestion. A loneliness of spirit falls upon her that is all the more intense because of the very excess of guidance with which her infant and scholastic years were surrounded. Then she was told every moment what was the duty of that moment; now there is upon such matters a silence that may be felt. True, that perhaps she need not do anything. Let her gather the rosebuds. By all means let her gather them. Let her not miss one, unless it be that some other may pluck it. To be sweet-and-twenty, and to live romance - what is the use of bringing the distinctions of committee rooms and examiners' boards into terms of comparison with the great privilege of youth?
