Little Women

“I like good strong words that mean something…” 
― 
Louisa May AlcottLittle Women

“You are the gull, Jo, strong and wild, fond of the storm and the wind, flying far out to sea, and happy all alone.” 
― 
Louisa May AlcottLittle Women

"Then it was that Margaret, sitting alone with tears dropping often on her work, felt how rich she had been in things more precious than any luxuries money could buy – in love, protection, peace, and health, the real blessings of life."
– Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

“Be worthy love, and love will come.” 
― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

“life and love are very precious when both are in full bloom.” 
― Louisa May AlcottLittle Women

“…she was one of those happily created beings who please without effort, make friends everywhere, and take life so gracefully and easily that less fortunate souls are tempted to believe that such are born under a lucky star.” 
― Louisa May AlcottLittle Women

"I want my daughters to be beautiful, accomplished, and good.  To be admired, loved, and respected.  To have a happy youth, to be well and wisely married, and to lead useful, pleasant lives, with as little care and sorrow to try them as God sees fit to send.  To be loved and chosen by a good man is the best and sweetest thing which can happen to a woman, and I sincerely hope my girls may know this beautiful experience.  It is natural to think of it, Meg, right to hope and wait for it, and wise to prepare for it, so that when the happy time comes, you may feel ready for the duties and worthy of the joy."

– Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
