Kami liked a quote
A Lantern in Her Hand by Bess Streeter Aldrich
“Small wonder that love would break under circumstances like these. Standing there in the soddie door, she seemed two personalities. One argued bitterly that it was impossible for love to keep going when there was no hope for the future, suggested that there was no use trying to keep it going. The other said sternly that marriage was not the fulfillment of a passion, - marriage was the fulfillment of love. And love was sometimes pleasure and sometimes duty.”

Meh, not my favorite story or illustrations, but it wasn't awful. I don't really have an issue with him beating on the greedy guards (like so many other reviewers), I just didn't like the story/writing style altogether.

“I think a good book is a good book forever.
I don't think they get less good because times change.”
Megan Whalen Turner

“In life all must choose at times. Sometimes, two possibilities are good; neither is evil. Usually, however, one is of greater import than the other. When in doubt, each must choose that which concerns the good of others - the greater law - rather than that which chiefly benefits ourselves - the lesser law. The greater must be chosen whether it be law or thing. That was the choice made in Eden. ”
John A. Widtsoe

“Junior was eleven. The statement is significant. There are a few peevish people in the world who believe that all eleven-year-old boys ought to be hung. Others, less irritable, think that gently chloroforming them would seem more humane. A great many good-natured folks contend that incarceration for a couple of years would prove the best way to dispose of them.”
Bess Streeter Aldrich, Mother Mason

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

“You have, to dream things out. It keeps a kind of an ideal before you. You see it first in your mind and then you set about to try and make it like the ideal. If you want a garden,—why, I guess you've got to dream a garden.”
Bess Streeter Aldrich, A Lantern in Her Hand
