Mrs. E.D.E.N. Southworth

  • A living sorrow is far harder to bear than a dead one!

  • Silence gives consent.

  • And no sooner had Cap been commanded, if she valued her safety, not to cross the water or climb the precipice than, as a natural consequence, she began to wonder what was in the valley behind the mountain and what might be in the woods across the river. And she longed, above all things, to explore and find out for herself.

  • There are some persons whom we can never make happy. It is not in them to be so.

    • Mrs. E.D.E.N. Southworth
