Aunt Jane's Hero Quotes (showing 1-4 of 4)
“But if God does not give us children, knowing as He does how thankful we should be for them, it is surely because He has some good reason for it. Perhaps there are now in the world some fatherless and motherless little ones that He is saving for us till we can afford to take them”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Aunt Jane's Hero
“It will not hurt either of you as long as you have health. And if that fails, God will provide for you in some way," said her father. "He is rich, and could give you more now if He saw that it would be good for you. Never forget that.”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Aunt Jane's Hero
“God does not give beforehand the grace with which to bear His blows; He does not heal before he smites. In your terror at the thought of parting with Horace, you left entirely out of account the sustaining power that would hold you up and bear you through those awful moments; you suffered in advance, and wholly in your own strength. But how many, how many persons I have heard say, ‘I am a marvel to myself! This blow, so long dreaded, has not slain me, as I ever believed it would; I stagger under it, but I live to wonder at the strength God gives me, and in which I bear it.”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Aunt Jane's Hero
“joy emerges from sorrow, and soars on wings far more beautiful than any earthly analogy can paint.”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Aunt Jane's Hero
