Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Christina Rossetti
(1830-1894) born on
Dec 5
English poet. "She was one of the most important of English women poets both in range and quality; "Goblin Market," 1862."

"I might show facts as plain as day:
But since your eyes are blind, you'd say,
"Where? What?" and turn away."

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads.
The wind is passing by.
"The downhill path is easy, but there's no turning back."
Better by far that you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad.
"So now in patience I possess
My soul year after tedious year,
Content to take the lowest place
The place assigned me here."
