Who is nancy hale?

Famous quotes containing the words nancy hale, hale and/or nancy:

    An artist’s originality is balanced by a corresponding conservatism, a superstitiousness, about it; which might be boiled down to “What worked before will work again.”
    Nancy Hale (b. 1908)

    It is useless to check the vain dunce who has caught the mania of scribbling, whether prose or poetry, canzonets or criticisms,—let such a one go on till the disease exhausts itself. Opposition like water, thrown on burning oil, but increases the evil, because a person of weak judgment will seldom listen to reason, but become obstinate under reproof.
    —Sarah Josepha Buell Hale 1788–1879, U.S. novelist, poet and women’s magazine editor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 36-40 (December 1828)

    Miss Nancy Ellicott smoked
    And danced all the modern dances;
    And her aunts were not quite sure how they felt about it,
    But they knew that it was modern.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
