Eugene Field
b. 9-2-1850; St. Louis, MO
d. 11-4-1895; Chicago, IL

Eugene Field, best remembered for his children's poetry and humorous essays, is the namesake of numerous elementary schools, particularly in the Midwest. One of Field's best known poems is Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

Eugene Field quotes ~
• “Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night / Sailed off in a wooden shoe - / Sailed on a river of crystal light, / Into a sea of dew.”
• “Ideas came with explosive immediacy, like an instant birth. Human thought is like a monstrous pendulum; it keeps swinging from one extreme to the other.”

She was the author of A Montessori Mother (1912), and of Understood Betsy, describing a Montessori style education.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher quotes ~

M. F. K. Fisher
b. 7-3-1908; Albion, MI
d. 6-22-1992; California

Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher dealt primarily with food, considering it from many aspects: preparation, natural history, culture, and philosophy.

M. F. K. Fisher quotes ~
• “People ask me: "Why do you write about food, and eating, and drinking? Why don't you write about the struggle for power and security, and about love, the way the others do?" . . . The easiest answer is to say that, like most other humans, I am hungry.”
• “Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.”
• “. . . word-sniffing . . . is an addiction, like glue -- or snow -- sniffing in a somewhat less destructive way, physically if not economically . . . . As an addict, I am almost guiltily interested in converts to my own illness . . .”
• “Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures.”
