Laura Ingalls Wilder Quotes...

Laura Ingalls Wilder Quotes

"No one ever achieved anything from the smallest object
to the greatest unless the dream was dreamed first."

"I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things
of life which are the real ones after all."

"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest
and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with
simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong."

"I believe we would be happier to have a personal
revolution in our individual lives and go back to simpler
living and more direct thinking."

"We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become
acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts."

"If enough people think of a thing and work hard enough at it,
I guess it's pretty nearly bound to happen,
wind and weather permitting."

"There's no great loss without some small gain."

"The trouble with organizing a thing is that pretty soon
folks get to paying more attention to the organization than to
what they're organized for."

"To know I have helped someone a little or made a day
brighter will make my own work easier and cause the sun
to shine on the dark days, for we all have them."

"All those golden autumn days the sky was full of wings. Wings
beating low over the blue water of Silver Lake, wings beating high
in the blue air far above it. Wings of geese, of brant, of ducks
and pelicans and cranes and heron and swans and gulls,
bearing them all away to green fields in the South."

"Home is the nicest word there is."
