Lydia Maria Child Quotes LYDIA MARIA CHILD QUOTES


Lydia Maria Child (1802-1880)

U.S. author and abolitionist

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of the character, though few can decypher even fragments of their meaning.

LYDIA MARIA CHILD, Letters from New York

Law is not law, if it violates the principles of eternal justice.

LYDIA MARIA CHILD, speech, 1861

In politeness, as in many other things connected with the formation of character, people in general begin outside, when they should begin inside; instead of beginning with the heart, and trusting that to form the manners, they begin with the manners, and trust the heart to chance influences. The golden rule contains the very life and soul of politeness.

LYDIA MARIA CHILD, The Mother's Book
