The end of September brings with it two very important dates: the birthday of T.S. Eliot and the 145th anniversary of the publication of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. In celebration of these two great writers, listed below are some of their most ardent quotes:



“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”

“Success is relative. It is what we make of the mess we have made of things.”

-T.S. Eliot



“Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear  ridicule and reproach for the truth’s  sake, and so earn some  right to rejoice when the  victory is won.”

“Painful as it may be, a significant emotional event can be the catalyst for choosing a  direction  that serves us – and those around us – more effectively. Look for the  learning.”

-Louisa May Alcott
