Who is anna c. brackett?

Famous quotes by anna c. brackett:

    ...there are perhaps only one or two things in the world which are not far more charming in desire than they are in possession.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)

    What we learn for the sake of knowing, we hold; what we learn for the sake of accomplishing some ulterior end, we forget as soon as that end has been gained. This, too, is automatic action in the constitution of the mind itself, and it is fortunate and merciful that it is so, for otherwise our minds would be soon only rubbish-rooms.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)
