Creative Quotations from . . .
Louisa May Alcott
(1832-1888) born on
Nov 29
US novelist. Her book "Little Women," 1868, sold millions of copies.
Life is my college. May I graduate well, and earn some honors!

A little kingdom I possess,
Where thoughts and feelings dwell;
And very hard the task I find
Of governing it well.
It takes two flints to make a fire.
Talent isn't genius and no amount of energy can make it so. I want to be great, or nothing. I won't be a commonplace dauber, so I don't intend to try any more.
It takes very little fire to make a great deal of smoke nowadays, and notoriety is not real glory.
