“Be glad. Be good. Be brave.”
Eleanor H. Porter

“What men and women need is encouragement. Their natural resisting powers should be strengthened, not weakened ... Instead of always harping on a man's faults, tell him of his virtues. Try to pull him out of his rut ... Hold up to him his better self, his real self that can dare and do and win out! ... People radiate what is in their minds and in their hearts.”
Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna

“Just breathing isn't living!”
Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna
