A Quote by Lydia Maria Child on angels, beauty, character, love, meaning, men, and words

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decypher even fragments of their meaning.

A Quote by Lydia Maria Child on cheerfulness, effort, people, and pleasure

You find yourself refreshed by the presence of cheerful people. Why not make earnest effort to confer that pleasure on others? Half the battle is gained if you never allow yourself to say anything gloomy.
