Frances Gray Patton

  • To tell an adult exactly what steps to take towards his salvation was apt to weaken him. It deprived him of his inalienable right to trial and error which was tonic to the character.

  • ... empathy, the least comfortable of human emotions.

  • Restraint is the better part of beauty.

Frances Gray Patton, U.S. writer

(1906 - 2000)
