Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott is the author of the enchanting classic Little Women, she begun writing sometimes anonymously and sometimes under the name of ‘A.N. Barnard’ to contribute to her family’s income. Little Women was a turning point of her career ; The novel was an immediate success. She published four sequels to Little Women entitled “Good Wives” volume II of Little Women, “Little Men” Life at Plum field with Jo’s Boys, “Aunt Jo’s Scrap Bag”, and” Jo’s Boys”. I personally think that her Jo March character was exceptional, may be because we have a lot in common :))

“Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, and it makes the end so easy”

“Girls are so queer you never know what they mean. They say No when they mean Yes, and drive a man out of his wits for the fun of it”

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead”

“He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions”

“It takes two flints to make a fire”

“”Stay” is a charming word in a friend’s vocabulary”

“Women have been called queens for a long time, but the kingdom given them isn’t worth ruling”

“You have a good many little gifts and virtues, but there is no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, and the great charm of all power is modesty”
