“Whatever comes,” she said, “cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett (A Little Princess)
I just recently read A Little Princess. I’ve seen the movie but had never read the book. I actually have a list of children’s books I want to read/reread. Also on the list are Peter Pan, The Little Prince, The Secret Garden, and Anne of Green Gables. Now I just need a few more hours in the day.
What are you reading? Probably not kids’ books right?
