Creative Quotations from . . .
Helen Hunt Jackson
(1830-1885) born on
Oct 15
US novelist, poet, essayist. She was an activist for Native American rights; wrote "Ramona," 1884.
Now and then one sees a face which has kept its smile pure and undefiled. Such a smile transfigures; such a smile, if the artful but know it, is the greatest weapon a face can have.

Words are less needful to sorrow than to joy.
Who waits until the wind shall silent keep.
Will never find the ready hour to sow.
Wounded vanity knows when it is mortally hurt; and limps off the field, piteous, all disguises thrown away. But pride carries its banner to the last; and fast as it is driven from one field unfurls it in another.
Who longest waits most surely wins.
