• “Hard is it to die, because our delicate flesh doth shrink back from the worm it will not feel, and from that unknown which the winding-sheet doth curtain from our view. But harder still, to my fancy, would it be to live on, green in the leaf and fair, but dead and rotten at the core, and feel that other secret worm of recollection gnawing ever at the heart.” She

Edward Everett Hale quotes ~
• “I am only one, but I am one. I can't do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.”

Sarah Josepha Hale, herself an autodidact (self-educating), was an early activist for women's education and property rights, as well as teaching school. Her attitude was women were most powerful in domestic roles, and thus didn't support women's suffrage.

Hale is best remembered for being editor of Godey Lady's Book, publishing the work of other women authors, and as the author of the nursery rhymeMary Had a Little Lamb” published in 1830 (and the first words spoken by Thomas Edison into his recording machine in 1877). She spearheaded the building of the Bunker Hill Monument, the preservation of George Washington's plantation at Mount Vernon, was primary in the establishment of a National Day of Thanksgiving (Lincoln, 1863), and helped found Vassar College.

Hale was one of the first American novelist with Northwood; or, Life north and south: showing the true character of both, a story about slavery.

Sarah Josepha Hale quotes ~
• “There is small danger of being starved in our land of plenty; but the danger of being stuffed is imminent.”
• “In this age of innovation, perhaps no experiment will have an influence more important on the character and happiness of our society than the granting to females the advantages of a systematic and thorough education.”
• “Nor need we power or splendor, wide hall or lordly dome; the good, the true, the tender- these form the wealth of home.”
• “No influence is so powerful as that of the mother.”
• “There is something in the decay of nature that awakens thought, even in the most trifling mind.”
• “A blessing on the printer's art! – Books are the mentors of the heart.”
• “I have learned to judge of men by their own deeds, and not to make the accident of birth the standard of their merit.”
