Susanna Rowson

  • 'Tis emblematic, the rose of youth and health soon fades when watered by the tear of affliction.

  • The very basis of true peace of mind is a benevolent wish to see all the world as happy as one's self ...

  • ... the heart that is truly virtuous is ever inclined to pity and forgive the errors of its fellow-creatures.

  • While discretion points out the impropriety of my conduct, inclination urges me on to ruin.

Susanna Rowson, English-U.S. novelist, poet, playwright, actor, educator

(1762 - 1824)

Full name: Susanna Haswell Rowson.
