Real Things

“The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder

  1. Was that Laura Ingalls Wilder? It’s funny but I would have sworn that that quote came from Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of ‘Anne of Green Gables’, but I must be mistaken. Could you let me know in which book she wrote that?
    Thanks!!
    P.S. Love swissmiss!

  2. Beautiful words. Thank you for sharing.

  3. The quote is apparently from a February 1947 letter from Wilder “to Children”: http://www.liwfrontiergirl.com/letter.html
