Frances Hodgson Burnett has written some beautiful quotes. In celebration of this month’s crate launch, we thought we’d share a few of our favourites with you. ✨
"To be kind is worth a great deal."
"Somehow, something always happens just before things get to the very worst. It is as if Magic did it. If I could only just remember that always. The worse thing never quite comes."
"Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it."
"I know you by heart. You are inside my heart."
"If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that — warm things, kind things, sweet things–help and comfort and laughter — and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all."
"Give her books, and she would devour them and end by knowing them by heart."
"If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden."
"Never did she find anything so difficult as to keep herself from losing her temper when she was suddenly disturbed while absorbed in a book. People who are fond of books know the feeling of irritation which sweeps over them at such a moment. The temptation to be unreasonable and snappish is one not easy to manage."
"Whatever comes … cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it."
