Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Letitia Landon
(1802-1838) born on
Aug 14
English "poet, novelist". She wrote of passionate love at a time when women were restricted in their themes; remembered for her high-spirited social life and mysterious death.

No thoroughly occupied man was ever yet very miserable.

Were it not better to forget
Than to remember and regret?
"Love is a pearl of purest hue,
But stormy waves are round it;
And dearly may a woman rue,
The hour that she found it."
How disappointment tracks the steps of hope.
Ah tell me not that memory
Sheds gladness o'er the past;
What is recalled by faded flowers
Save that they did not last?
