Myrtie Barker

  • Trouble is a chisel that shapes and designs.

  • The most spectacular success was first a hope.

  • Whether married or unmarried, there is an aloneness from which there is no escape. ... No one is where I am.

  • That idea of strictly minding one's own business is moldy rubbish. Who could be so selfish?

  • No matter how long one may live, no two days of life will be the same.

  • ... there are no little people, and there are no little jobs.

  • Every event, menial or momentous, has a first step. And it goes on and on, until the last day. And even on that day, we have a first-time experience. On that day, the bud becomes a blossom. For the first time, we die.
