Quote it Saturday: Anne Morrow Lindberg




“I must write it all out, at any cost. Writing is thinking. It is more than living, for it is being conscious of living.”

Men kick friendship around like a football but it doesn't seem to break. Women treat it like glass and it goes to pieces."

“By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.”


~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh (1906-2001)
pioneering American aviator and author; married to aviator Charles Lindbergh (photo from Wikipedia)


Quote It Saturday is a meme hosted by Freda's Voice. I chose to highlight these quotes because I love Anne Morrow Lindbergh's book, Gift from the Sea (1955). For quotes from this book, please visit a thousand Books with Quotes.

  13. Gift From the Sea has staying power. I first read it in 1975, and it's remained one of those "once-a-year" books. Sometimes more. She understands the complex relationships between the physical and spiritual/mental world as well as anyone.

  16. Gift from the Sea is such a great litle book; almost like a devotional! The one about friendship really makes me think. Smile, but think at the same time.

  20. I don't know much about Anne Morrow Lingbergh, but I believe she was an amazing woman, through thick and thin and raising 6 wonderful children.

  21. Anne Morrow Lindbergh's book is a beautifully written narrative about the glories of Life and Change. For an over 40 year old book, the message is timeless and one that brings a peaceful feeling, similar to lying on a quiet beach listening to the ebb and flow of the waves. For this hectic, overly tasked world, it is a joy to read (and listen to on audio) again and again.
