Famous quotes containing the word richards:

    I often think that all the difficulties we encounter only give us the more strength if we keep hold of our work, and we must not now give up while in the prime of life. It is best to keep trying, and by and by the opportunity will come. If we have given up, then we shall not be ready for it when it does come.
    —Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)
