Helen Ekin Starrett
“... while games and other amusements may serve for a temporary variety (always excepting games known as 'kissing-games,' which should be promptly tabooed and denounced, and ever will be in truly refined society), yet animated and intelligent conversation must always hold the first place in the list of the pleasures of any refined society circle.”
“... there is scarcely any reading so utterly demoralizing to good mental habits as the ordinary daily paper.”
“The talent for being sarcastic is a most dangerous one. No one ever knew a sarcastic woman who could keep friends.”
Helen Ekin Starrett, U.S. writer
(1840 - 1920)
