“Long ago she had discovered that reading was for her almost as necessary to life as breathing.”
Barbara Anne Waite, Elsie: Adventures of an Arizona Schoolteacher 1913-1916

Topics Mentioning This Author

“A book is like the best friend you can imagine. Once you read a book, it stays with you forever.”
Jessica McCann, All Different Kinds of Free

“But our tiny home is so much more than its four ramshackle walls and lopsided roof would have you believe. Inside, it’s big, full of love. It’s a hospital where my babies can be born. It’s a schoolhouse where my children can learn. It’s a mansion where my husband and I can enjoy the riches of our life together.”
Jessica McCann, All Different Kinds of Free

“One word
Frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
That word is love.”
Sophocles

“The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones.”
Joseph Joubert

“The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman.”
Elisabeth Elliot
