Lydia Child
Quotations


Every human being has, like Socrates, an attendant spirit; and wise are they who obey its signals. If it does not always tell us what to do, it always cautions us what not to do.

Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!

Childhood itself is scarcely more lovely than a cheerful, kind, sunshiny old age.

It is right noble to fight with wickedness and wrong; the mistake is in supposing that spiritual evil can be overcome by physical means.

None speak of the bravery, the might, or the intellect of Jesus; but the devil is always imagined as a being of acute intellect, political cunning, and the fiercest courage. These universal and instinctive tendencies of the human mind reveal much.

The eye of genius has always a plaintive expression, and its natural language is pathos.

Whoso does not see that genuine life is a battle and a march has poorly read his origin and his destiny.
