Famous quotes containing the word richards:

    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.
    —Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)

    “Oh, nonio, Antonio!
    You’re far too bleak and bonio!
    And all that I wish,
    You singular fish,
    Is that you will quickly begonio.”
    —Laura Elizabeth Richards (1850–1943)

    There are women in middle life, whose days are crowded with practical duties, physical strain, and moral responsibility ... they fail to see that some use of the mind, in solid reading or in study, would refresh them by its contrast with carking cares, and would prepare interest and pleasure for their later years. Such women often sink into depression, as their cares fall away from them, and many even become insane. They are mentally starved to death.
    —Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)
