Famous quotes containing the words maria and/or josepha:

    It were a blessed sight to see
    That child become a willow tree,
    His brother trees among.
    He’d be four times as tall as me,
    And live three times as long.
    —Catherine Maria Fanshawe (1765–1834)

    It is useless to check the vain dunce who has caught the mania of scribbling, whether prose or poetry, canzonets or criticisms,—let such a one go on till the disease exhausts itself. Opposition like water, thrown on burning oil, but increases the evil, because a person of weak judgment will seldom listen to reason, but become obstinate under reproof.
    —Sarah Josepha Buell Hale 1788–1879, U.S. novelist, poet and women’s magazine editor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 36-40 (December 1828)
