Louise Closser Hale

  • I guess the quality that makes one write poetry keeps one from selling it.

  • Now that I am sixteen and can look back upon life, I find that almost everything that we do which we like has to be buried in one way or another.

  • The spring in Boston is like being in love: bad days slip in among the good ones, and the whole world is at a standstill, then the sun shines, the tears dry up, and we forget that yesterday was stormy.

  • Even those who lose the battle are not cowards — if they have fought.

  • Love! The poor word. How it has suffered up and down the streets of the world.

Louise Closser Hale, U.S. actor, playwright, novelist

(1872 - 1933)
