Creative Quotations from . . .
Elizabeth Coatsworth
(1893-1986) born on
May 31
US poet, children's author. She won the Newbery Award for "The Cat Who Went to Heaven," 1930.
The sunset caught me, turned the brush to copper,
set the clouds
to one great roof of flame
above the earth.

Only of one thing I am sure:
when I dream
I am always ageless.
To a life that seizes
Upon content,
Locality seems
But accident.
Outwardly I am 83, but inwardly I am every age, with the emotions and experience of each period.
During much of my life I was anxious to be what someone else wanted me to be. Now I have given up that struggle. I am what I am.
