„Приближайтесь к Богу не обрядами и церемониями, а внутренним чувством. Небеса — это не место и не время.“

„Когда я более не буду воспоминанием, а только именем, надеюсь, мой голос сможет продолжать работу всей моей жизни. Боже, благослови дорогих старых друзей по Балаклаве, и помоги им благополучно добраться до берега.“


„Повторение делает репутацию, и репутация делает клиентов.“

„I attribute my success to this:—I never gave or took an excuse.“

„I am of certain convinced that the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel.“

„If I could give you information of my life it would be to show how a woman of very ordinary ability has been led by God in strange and unaccustomed paths to do in His service what He has done in her. And if I could tell you all, you would see how God has done all, and I nothing. I have worked hard, very hard, that is all; and I have never refused God anything.“

„Rather, ten times, die in the surf, heralding the way to a new world, than stand idly on the shore.“

„You ask me why I do not write something.... I think one's feelings waste themselves in words, they ought all to be distilled into actions and into actions which bring results.“


„The very first requirement in a hospital is that it should do the sick no harm.“ Notes on Nursing: What It Is, and What It Is Not

„Women never have a half-hour in all their lives (excepting before or after anybody is up in the house) that they can call their own, without fear of offending or of hurting someone. Why do people sit up so late, or, more rarely, get up so early? Not because the day is not long enough, but because they have 'no time in the day to themselves.' 1852“

„Live life when you have it. Life is a splendid gift-there is nothing small about it.“

„Let whoever is in charge keep this simple question in her head (not, how can I always do this right thing myself, but) how can I provide for this right thing to be always done?“ Notes on Nursing: What It Is, and What It Is Not


„Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better.“

„A woman cannot live in the light of intellect. Society forbids it. Those conventional frivolities, which are called her 'duties', forbid it. Her 'domestic duties', high-sounding words, which, for the most part, are but bad habits (which she has not the courage to enfranchise herself from, the strength to break through), forbid it.“

„To understand God's thoughts we must study statistics, for these are the measure of his purpose.“

„So never lose an opportunity of urging a practical beginning, however small, for it is wonderful how often in such matters the mustard-seed germinates and roots itself.“
