Famous quotes containing the words maria and/or henrietta:

    God rest you merry, gentlemen,
    Let nothing you dismay,
    For Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
    Was born upon this day,
    To save us all from Satan’s power
    When we were gone astray.
    O tidings of comfort and joy!
    For Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
    Was born on Christmas Day.
    —Dinah Maria Mulock Craik (1826–1887)

    One of the greatest faults of the women of the present time is a silly fear of things, and one object of the education of girls should be to give them knowledge of what things are really dangerous.
