Anne Home Hunter Quote


Picture Quote:



My mother bids me bind my hair With bands of rosy hue, Tie up my sleeve with ribbands rare, And lace my bodice blue; For why, she cries, sit still and weep, While others dance and play? Alas, I scarce can go or creep, While Rubin is away.  - Anne Home Hunter

Source/Notes:
According to "The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln: 1858-1860" (Rutgers University Press, 1953), "tradition has come to attribute to the Clinton speeches [September 1858 speech in Clinton, Illinois] one of Lincoln's most famous utterances..." - Although, according to "They Never Said It : A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions" (Oxford University Press, May 18, 1989), there is no substantial evidence to support the attribution.

Quote of the day

Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us - and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.
