A Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe on childish, mind, words, and revival

These words dropped into my childish mind as if you should accidentally drop a ring into a deep well.  I did not think of them much at the time, but there came a day in my life when the ring was fished up out of the well, good as new.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. quoted by Og Mandino.

A Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe on birds, life, nature, prayer, soul, and thought

Still, still with Thee when purple morning breaketh, When the bird walketh, and the shadows flee; Fairer than morning, lovelier than daylight Dawns the sweet consciousness; I am with Thee. Alone with Thee amid the mystic shadows, The solemn hush of nature newly born. Alone with Thee in breathless adoration, In the calm dew and freshness of the morn. When sinks the soul, subdued by toil, to slumber, It's closing eyes look up to Thee in prayer; Sweet the repose beneath Thy wings o'ershading, But sweeter still to wake and find Thee there. So shall it be at last in that bright morning, When the soul walketh and life's shadows flee. Oh, in that hour, fairer than daylight's dawning, Shall rise the glorious thought: I am with Thee!

A Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe on children, laughter, and motherhood

'Who was your mother?' 'Never had none!' said the child, with another grin. 'Never had any mother? What do you mean? Where were you born?' 'Never was born!' 'Do you know who made you?' 'Nobody, as I knows on,' said the child, with a short laugh. . . . 'I 'spect I grow'd.'
