Dame Shirley

  • How oddly do life and death jostle each other in this strange world of ours! How nearly allied are smiles and tears!

  • ... as is often said, nothing is strange in California.

  • In truth, it requires not only a large intellect, but a large heart, to judge with becoming charity of the peculiar temptations of riches.

  • ... surely it would be kinder to take a man's life, than to poison him with the fatal passion for gambling.

Dame Shirley, U.S. writer

(1819 - 1906)

Real name: Louise Amelia Knapp Smith Clappe.
