Little Women Quotes

Jo March: He's dull as powder, Meg. Can't you at least marry someone amusing?

Marmee: Feminine weaknesses and fainting spells are the direct result of our confining young girls to the house, bent over their needlework, and restrictive corsets.

Amy: I don't wanna die. I've never even been kissed. I've waited my whole life to be kissed, and what if I miss it?

Amy: You don't need scores of suitors. You need only one... if he's the right one.

John Brooke: Over the mysteries of female life there is drawn a veil best left undisturbed.

Beth: I know I shall be homesick for you even in Heaven.

Jo March: I find it poor logic to say that women should vote because they are good. Men do not vote because they are good; they vote because they are male, and women should vote, not because we are angels and men are animals, but because we are human beings and citizens of this country.

I love Little Women! It was one of my favorite books when I was little, and my mom has a shelf on our bookcase that has Louisa May Alcott's books on it and some Little Women dolls that she and her sisters had when they were little. I really should go back and reread it; I think I was about 10 the last time I read it.

Also, thank you very much for the comment on my latest cake! I really appreciate it!!
