    “If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things—help and comfort and laughter—and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.”

    “When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn't said afterward. There's nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in--that's stronger. It's a good thing not to answer your enemies.”

    “Never did she find anything so difficult as to keep herself from losing her temper when she was suddenly disturbed while absorbed in a book. People who are fond of books know the feeling of irritation which sweeps over them at such a moment. The temptation to be unreasonable and snappish is one not easy to manage.
    "It makes me feel as if something had hit me," Sara had told Ermengarde once in confidence. "And as if I want to hit back. I have to remember things quickly to keep from saying something ill-tempered.”

    “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses.”

    “Perhaps to be able to learn things quickly isn't everything. To be kind is worth a great deal to other people...Lots of clever people have done harm and have been wicked.”

  • No matter how much you know the plot is contrived, when this part of the novel comes around you can't wait to see certain characters get their just deserts. So despite some of the faults of the novel, it is very emotionally satisfying. Sara Crewe is so cute and her little world of dolls and fanciful dreams is very appealing.

  • Sara Crewe is an unforgettable heroine whose spirit, loving heart, and resolve to never give up render her a role model worthy of knowing.

  • Lest all my picking apart give you the wrong impression (as nerdy as it sounds, this actually is my idea of bookish fun), let me say again that I really loved this book – much more so than The Secret Garden, though I did like that one well enough. But A Little Princess was even more charming...
