Mary Lasswell

  • That girl's as handy as a pocket in a shirt!

  • She has a heart like a poorhouse blanket with a warm side for everybody.

  • I feel so small I could sit on a dime an' my legs wouldn't even hang over ...

  • Oughta be a law everybody has to take a trip every two years just to make 'em realize how good home is.

  • Children of yesterday, / Heirs of to-morrow, / What are you weaving? / Labor and sorrow? / Look to your looms again. / Faster and faster / Fly the great shuttles / Prepared by the Master, / Life's in the loom, / Room for it — / Room!
