Louisa May Alcott Quotes
I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. Keep good company, read good books, love good things and cultivate soul and body as faithfully as you can.

Time erodes all such beauty, but what it cannot diminish is the wonderful workings of your mind: Your humor, your kindness, and your moral courage.

So full of talent; and after working long, just as success, love, and happiness come, she dies.
