I don't think it's fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things, and other girls nothing at all

“There, I’ve done my best! If this won’t suit I shall have to wait till I can do bet­ter.”
Катя Кологриваяhas quoted2 years ago
hate to think I've got to grow up, and be Miss March, and wear long gowns, and look as prim as a China Aster! It's bad enough to be a girl, anyway, when I like boy's games and work and manners! I can't get over my disappointment in not being a boy. And it's worse than ever now, for I'm dying to go and fight with Papa. And I can only stay home and knit, like a poky old woman
ToniAnn Luehas quoted5 years ago
Hither, hither, from thy home,
Airy sprite, I bid thee come!
Born of roses, fed on dew,
Charms and potions canst thou brew?
Bring me here, with elfin speed,
The fragrant philter which I need.
Make it sweet and swift and strong,
Spirit, answer now my song!
A soft strain of music sounded, and then at the back of the cave appeared a little figure

Money is a need­ful and pre­cious thing—and, when well used, a no­ble thing—but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I’d rather see you poor men’s wives, if you were happy, beloved, con­tented, than queens on thrones, with­out self-re­spect and peace.”

“It is only an­other name for try­ing to be good, and the story may help us; for though we do want to be good, it’s hard work, and we for­get, and don’t do our best.”

Our bur­dens are here, our road is be­fore us, and the long­ing for good­ness and hap­pi­ness is the guide that leads us through many trou­bles and mis­takes to the peace which is a true Ce­les­tial City.
Екатерина Мекшунhas quoted4 months ago
You have a good many lit­tle gifts and virtues, but there is no need of parad­ing them, for con­ceit spoils the finest ge­nius

Early as it was, he was at the sta­tion, next morn­ing, to see Jo off; and, thanks to him, she be­gan her soli­tary jour­ney with the pleas­ant mem­ory of a fa­mil­iar face smil­ing its farewell, a bunch of vi­o­lets to keep her com­pany, and, best of all, the happy thought—
“Well, the win­ter’s gone, and I’ve writ­ten no books, earned no for­tune; but I’ve made a friend worth hav­ing, and I’ll try to keep him all my life.”

replied her mother, who had given her many anx­ious looks that day; for moth­erly eyes are quick to see any change in chil­dren’s faces.
Katerina Gaideihas quoted2 years ago
how rich she had been in things more precious than any luxuries money could buy—in love, protection, peace, and health, the real blessings of life.
Stephanie Cheah-Wonghas quoted4 years ago
"I want my daughters to be beautiful, accomplished, and good.
To be admired, loved, and respected. To have a happy youth, to be well and wisely married, and to lead useful, pleasant lives, with as little care and sorrow to try them as God sees fit to send.
To be loved and chosen by a good man is the best and sweetest thing which can happen to a woman, and I sincerely hope my girls may know this beautiful experience.
