Emma Hart Willard
“It is obvious, that theory alone, can never make a good artist; and it is equally obvious, that practice unaided by theory, can never correct errors, but must establish them.”
“Rocked in the cradle of the deep, / I lay me down in peace to sleep.”
Emma Hart Willard, U.S. educator, textbook writer, poet, songwriter
(1787 - 1870)
