Mrs. Alexander

  • I am not greedy of money myself, but the monotony of always screwing and paring is more tiresome than the monotony of riches.

  • ... she was blessed with a sense of humor — a precious gift which is the salt of the mind, saving from insipidity, and drawing out the true flavor of all mental comestibles.

  • One always finds time for what one likes.

  • [On reading:] It is almost the only inexhaustible pleasure.

Mrs. Alexander, Irish-born English writer

(1825 - 1902)

Real name: Annie French Hector.
