Famous quotes containing the word davis:

    You can make lots of mistakes, but if you give children avenues for creativity and joy, they will have resources to carry them through. For example, if cooking together, reading, listening to music, coloring, participating in sports, or taking a walk in the woods are paired with pleasure and closeness, throughout life doing these things will kindle old feelings of happiness an/or comfort.
    —Charlotte Davis Kasl (20th century)

    Before the birth of the New Woman the country was not an intellectual desert, as she is apt to suppose. There were teachers of the highest grade, and libraries, and countless circles in our towns and villages of scholarly, leisurely folk, who loved books, and music, and Nature, and lived much apart with them. The mad craze for money, which clutches at our souls to-day as la grippe does at our bodies, was hardly known then.
    —Rebecca Harding Davis (1831–1910)

    Night’s brittle song, silver-thin
    Shatters into a billion fragments
    Of quiet shadows
    At the blaring jazz
    Of a morning sun.
    —Frank Marshall Davis (b. 1905)
