Florence Howe Hall

  • It is not the correct thing to take offence if a neighbor states civilly that he would prefer your children should cease from breaking his windows.

  • It is not the correct thing to scold children for asking questions: this is about as reasonable as to scold them for breathing or thinking.

  • It is not the correct thing to invite many people who like to monopolize conversation; one of this kind will be found amply sufficient.

  • It is not the correct thing for the host to take advantage of the helpless position of his guests, and to retail to them all his old stories.

Florence Howe Hall, U.S. writer

(1845 - 1922)

Full name: Florence Marion Howe Hall.
