Famous quotes containing the words lucy larcom, lucy and/or larcom:

    I regard a love for poetry as one of the most needful and helpful elements in the life- outfit of a human being. It was the greatest of blessings to me, in the long days of toil to which I was shut in much earlier than most young girls are, that the poetry I held in my memory breathed its enchanted atmosphere through me and around me, and touched even dull drudgery with its sunshine.
    Lucy Larcom (1824–1893)

    They were fighting tradition and change. It just wasn’t my time.
    —Autherine Lucy (b. 1929)

    Tailor’s work—the finishing of men’s outside garments—was the “trade” learned most frequently by women in [the 1820s and 1830s], and one or more of my older sisters worked at it; I think it must have been at home, for I somehow or somewhere got the idea, while I was a small child, that the chief end of woman was to make clothing for mankind.
    —Lucy Larcom (1824–1893)
