Dinah Maria Mulock Craik Quotes


“A preface is usually an excrescence on a good book, and a vain apology for a worthless one.” ~Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

“[It] was the first time in my life I ever knew the meaning of that rare thing, tenderness. A quality different from kindliness, affectionateness, or benevolence; a quality which can exist only in strong, deep, and undemonstrative natures, and therefore in its perfection is oftenest found in men.” ~Dinah Maria Mulock Craik, John Halifax, Gentleman

"Keep what is worth keeping and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away." ~Dinah M. Craik

“Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts not measured words, but pouring them right out, just as they are.” ~Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

VERSE

“Forgotten? No, we never do forget:
We let the years go; wash them clean with tears,
Leave them to bleach out in the open day,
Or lock them careful by, like dead friends' clothes,
Till we shall dare unfold them without pain,—
But we forget not, never can forget.”
~Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
