Hannah More
b. 2-2-1745; Fishponds, Bristol, England
d. 9-7-1833; Bristol

Hannah More, a teacher, religious writer, philanthropist and social reformer, was one of the most influential women of her day. She associated with the intellectual society of England: actor and playwright David Garrick, painter Joshua Reynolds, Samuel Johnson, Edmund Burke, and Elizabeth Montagu (Blue Stocking Society); later she influenced abolitionist William Wilberforce. She was accused of “Methodist” tendencies for teaching farm children to read because workers who could read would would leave the farms and that would be “fatal to agriculture”.

d. 3-28-1957; New York

Journalist, novelist, essayist and poet Christopher Morley is perhaps best remembered for his 1939 novel Kitty Foyle, which was made into an Academy Award-winning movie.

Christopher Morely quotes ~
“All cities are mad: but the madness s gallant. All cities are beautiful: but the beauty is grim.”
“The courage of the poet is to keep ajar the door that leads into madness.”
“High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.”
“The real purpose of books is to trap the mind into doing its own thinking.”
Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, everyday, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.”
“There is only one rule for being a good talker - learn to listen.”
“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.”
“There are three ingredients to the good life; learning, earning, and yearning.”
“Man makes a great fuss about this planet which is only a ballbearing in the hub of the universe.”
“People like to imagine that because all our mechanical equipment moves so much faster, that we are thinking faster, too.”
“There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way, and not to give others absurd maddening claims upon it.”
“Man, an ingenious assembly of portable plumbing.”

Love is Enough, 1897, Giclee Print

The poem illustration is from Love is Enough, or The Freeing of Pharamond: A Morality (1872) by William Morris incorporating a Kelmscott Press typeface.

The Music VI
Love is enough; cherish life that abideth,
Lest ye die ere ye know him, and curse and misname him;
for who knows in what ruin of all hope he hideth,
On what wings of the terror of darkness be rideth?
And what is the joy of man's life that ye blame him
for his bliss grown a sword, and his rest grown a fire?
