Harriet Beecher

Famous quotes by harriet beecher:

    The longest day must have its close—the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning. An eternal, inexorable lapse of moments is ever hurrying the day of the evil to an eternal night, and the night of the just to an eternal day.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    I am speaking now of the highest duty we owe our friends, the noblest, the most sacred—that of keeping their own nobleness, goodness, pure and incorrupt.... If we let our friend become cold and selfish and exacting without a remonstrance, we are no true lover, no true friend.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    All places where women are excluded tend downward to barbarism; but the moment she is introduced, there come in with her courtesy, cleanliness, sobriety, and order.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    The obstinancy of cleverness and reason is nothing to the obstinancy of folly and inanity.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)
