Fannie E. Newberry

  • All dread those things they don't understand ...

  • Let them find out things for themselves. It is the only true wisdom, and nobody wants even cake thrust down his throat.

  • ... the children ... scattered in every direction, crying as they ran on, only to creep back after a moment drawn by that prurient curiosity which is the one natural tie left between the buzzard and man.

  • I think it takes a larger nature to receive nobly than to give nobly.

  • ... a great many times in this world, the hardest work we are given is just to sit to one side and neither speak, nor act. It is then prayer becomes an unspeakable blessing.

Fannie E. Newberry, U.S. writer

(1848 - 1942)
