Doris Gates

  • ... the willow plate was the only beautiful thing the Larkins owned. It was a blue willow plate, and in its pattern of birds and willows and human figures it held a story that for Janey never grew old. Its color, deep and unchanging, brought to her the promise of blue skies even on the grayest days and of blue oceans even in an arid wasteland.

  • ... it took courage to live the kind of life they lived without losing your grip on things.

Doris Gates, U.S. children's writer

(1901 - 1987)
