Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Please could I say one word?” was the question three times repeated before a rough head boobed out from the grotto of books in which Mac usually sat. “Did anyone speak?” he asked, blinking in teh flood of sunshine that entered with Rose. “Only three times, thank you. Don’t disturb yourself, I beg; for I merely want to say a word,” answered Rose.”

Louisa May Alcott Quote: “The right string had been touched, and even French exercises and piano practice became endurable, since accomplishments would be useful by and by; dress, manners, and habits were all interesting now, because ‘mind and body, heart and soul, must be cultivated’, and while training to become an ‘intelligent, graceful, healthy girl’, little Josie was unconsciously fitting herself to play her part well on whatever stage the great Manager might prepare for her.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Mr. Laurence. I have got a letter for the lady.”

Louisa May Alcott Quote: “I thought it was only a habit, easy to drop when I liked: But it is stronger than I; and sometimes I feel as if possessed of a devil that will get the better of me, try as I may.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “She was standing before a fine portrait of the old gentleman when the door opened again, and, without turning, she said decidedly, ‘I’m sure now that I shouldn’t be afraid of him, for he’s got kind eyes, though his mouth is grim, and he looks as if he had a tremendous will of his own. He isn’t as handsome as my grandfather, but I like him.’ ‘Thank you, ma’am,’ said a gruff voice behind her, and there, to her great dismay, stood old Mr. Laurence.”

A restless spirit possessed her, and the old feeling came again, not bitter as it once was, but a sorrowfully patient wonder why one sister should have all she asked, the other nothing. It was not true, she knew that and tried to put it away, but the natural craving for affection was strong, and Amy’s happiness woke the hungry longing for someone to ’love with heart and soul, and cling to while God let them be together.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Please could I say one word?” was the question three times repeated before a rough head bobbed out from the grotto of books in which Mac usually sat. “Did anyone speak?” he asked, blinking in the flood of sunshine that entered with Rose.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “The thought that, insignificant as she was, she yet might do some good, made her very careful of her acts and words, and so anxious to keep head contented and face happy, that she forgot her clothes, and made others do the same. She did not know it, but that good old fashion of simplicity made the plain gowns pretty, and the grace of unconsciousness beautified their little wearer with the charm that makes girlhood sweetest to those who truly love and reverence it.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Have regular hours for work and play, make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Thank goodness, I can always find something funny to keep me up.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “I beg leave to assure my honored readers that most of the incidents are taken from real life, and that the oddest are the truest; for no person, no matter how vivid an imagination he may have, can invent anything half so droll as the freaks and fancies that originate in the lively brains of little people.”

Louisa May Alcott Quote: “He was a faithful servant, and made himself so valuable to those who employed him that they will find it hard to fill his place.

Louisa May Alcott Quote: “I’d rather give her new ones, for I think she is a little bit proud and might not like old things. If she was my sister it would do, because sisters don’t mind, but she isn’t, and that makes it bad, you see. I know how I can manage beautifully; I’ll adopt her!” and Rose looked quite radiant with.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Christie loved books; and the attic next her own was full of them. To this store she found her way by a sort of instinct as sure as that which leads a fly to a honey-pot, and, finding many novels, she read her fill. This amusement lightened many heavy hours, peopled the silent house with troops of friends, and, for a time, was the joy of her life.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “But it did her good, for those whose opinion had real value gave her the criticism which is an author’s best education; and when the first soreness was over, she could laugh at her poor little book, yet believe in it still, and feel herself the wiser and stronger for the buffeting she had received.”
Louisa May Alcott Quote: “Yours, Mother? Why, you are never angry!” And for the moment Jo forgot remorse in surprise. “I’ve been trying to cure it for forty years, and have only succeeded in controlling it.
