  • Poor, successful, fallible Republican party! If it could only have kept the purity of the patriot impulse of which it was born!

  • A great magazine is sort of a net for ability ...

  • ... perpetuity in a home is a blanket for the cold years that come with age.

  • ... one of the most perfect and unfailing joys of life is planting. It is the creative joy felt by God ...

  • Blessed be those souls who are glad! They are a salve for sorrow and fatigue. A sun in days of darkness, a joy in sorrow, a ray of heaven shining through the uncertainness of earth.

  • If the physical perfection of childhood could last, what a possesssion it would be for humanity!

  • Brown people and black people and red people swarmed through our great halls, until those who were white looked simply faded-out human beings beside them.

I saw that color in skin had a certain advantage in strength and warmth as a means of beauty.

  • Peace is the wait of the patient soul.

  • We were a company of perhaps a dozen authors, editors, writers, artists, and the like — Mrs. Custer herself, Mrs. Dodge, Kate Field, Mrs. Sangster, Kate Douglas Wiggin, and others — all good friends and all busy and capable women. Mrs. Custer looked across the table. 'Why,' said she, 'we are all working-women; not a lady among us!'

  • And then came a time when I could no longer say 'We,' and I found myself in a lonesome land where no one remembered that I had ever been young, or called me by my given name.

Candace Wheeler, U.S. interior designer, textile designer

(1827 - 1923)
