Louisa May Alcott Quotes

Conceit spoils the finest genius. Louisa May Alcott

Work is and always has been my salvation and I thank the Lord for it. Louisa May Alcott

Talent isn’t genius, and no amount of energy can make it so. Louisa May Alcott

Love is a great beautifier. Louisa May Alcott

Rome took all the vanity out of me; for after seeing the wonders there, I felt too insignificant to live, and gave up all my foolish hopes in despair. Louisa May Alcott

When I had youth I had no money; now I have the money I have no time; and when I get the time, if I ever do, I shall have no health to enjoy life. I suppose it’s the discipline I need; but it’s rather hard to love the things I do, and see them go by because duty chains me to my galley. If I ever come into port with all sails set, that will be my reward perhaps. Louisa May Alcott
