Famous quotes containing the word higginson:

    The Englishman’s strong point is his vigorous insularity; that of the American his power of adaptation. Each of these attitudes has its perils. The Englishman stands firmly on his feet, but he who merely does this never advances. The American’s disposition is to step forward even at the risk of a fall.
    —Thomas Wentworth Higginson (1823–1911)

    It’s what you do, unthinking,
    That makes the quick tear start;
    The tear may be forgotten—
    But the hurt stays in the heart.
    —Ella Higginson (1862–1940)
