Quotes by Minna Thomas Antrim

"In honor of October, really just hours away now.....
Brew me a cup for a winter's night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I'll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair."

"Three failures denote uncommon strength. A weakling has not enough grit to fail thrice."

"To be loved is to be fortunate, but to be hated is to achieve distinction."
