I'll add this to the list of books I wish I'd read when I was young. It was well written, interesting, and Sarah was easy to identify with. Even as an adult, it sucked me in. I know I would have loved it as a little girl.

Quotes Echo Liked

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn't said afterward. There's nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in--that's stronger. It's a good thing not to answer your enemies.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Never did she find anything so difficult as to keep herself from losing her temper when she was suddenly disturbed while absorbed in a book. People who are fond of books know the feeling of irritation which sweeps over them at such a moment. The temptation to be unreasonable and snappish is one not easy to manage.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess
