Mabel Louise Robinson
“We have thought that because children are young they are silly. We have forgotten the blind stirrings, the reaching outward of our own youth.”
“Over and over again women and men ... come to me saying, I don't know enough to write a book for adults, and so I'd like to try a book for children. And I tell them that when they have learned enough to write for an adult perhaps a child will listen to them.”
“Only as we give the children the truth about life can we expect any improvement in it.”
“From the dog's point of view, his master is an elongated and abnormally cunning dog.”
Mabel Louise Robinson, U.S. children's writer
(1874 - 1962)
