Nancy Hoyt

  • The world seemed to be inhabited with three kinds of people — the sheep and the goats, and a few, a very few, lambs.

  • [On the United States:] They are noisy and talkative but very reserved, self-conscious and a little hypocritical, but they burn more boats and throw their bonnets over more windmills than any people on earth.

  • [On Washington, D.C.:] ... it is a small village in some ways. Everybody knows everything about everyone else. If something happens to you at one o'clock, the whole town knows it by two.

Nancy Hoyt, U.S. writer

(1902)

Full name: Nancy McMichael Hoyt.
