Creative Quotations from . . .
Alice Duer Miller
(1874-1942) born on
Jul 28
US poet, author. She is best remembered for "White Cliffs," 1941, a long narrative poem extolling Britain's resistance during WW II; also wrote "I Have Loved England."
Listening is not merely not talking, though even that is beyond most of our powers; it means taking a vigorous, human interest in what is being told us.

The innate tendency [of men] to appeal to force renders them particularly unfit for the task of government . . . Man's place is the armory.
When a woman like that whom I've seen so much
All of a sudden drops out of touch,
Is always busy and never can
Spare you a moment, it means a Man.
Love will not always linger longest
With those who hold it in too clenched a fist.
They make other nations seem pale and flighty,
But they do think England is God almighty,
And you must remind them now and then
That other countries breed other men.
