John G. Neihardt
b. 1-8-1881; Sharpsburg, IL
d. 11-24-1973; Columbia, MO

Author and poet John Gneisenau Neihardt was also an amateur historian and ethnographer who preserved memories of the Native Americans and the pioneer past. He was the Nebraska State Poet Laureate from 1921 until his death and also a professor at the University of Nebraska and the University of Missouri.

John Neihardt quotes ~
• “The only cowards are sinners; fighting the fight is all.”
• “Everything the Power of the World does is in a circle. The Sky is round and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars. The Wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles. ... The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were.” - Black Elk Speaks

Jan Neruda
b. 7-9-1834; Prague, Bohemia
d. 8-22-1891

Journalist, writer and poet Jan Neruda was one of the most prominent representatives of Czech Realism.

Pablo Neruda
b. 7-13-1903; Parral, Chile
d. 9-23-1973; Santiago

Pablo Neruda was the pen name of poet and politician Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He chose the pen name after the Czech poet Jan Neruda.

He was awarded the 1971 Nobel Prize for Literature “for a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams”.

FYI ~ Pablo Neruda always wrote in green ink because it was his color of hope.

Pablo Neruda quotes ~
• “The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.”
• “Peace goes into the making of a poem as flour goes into the making of bread.”
• “I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.”
• “A child who does not play is not a child, but the man who doesn't play has lost forever the child who lived in him and who he will miss terribly.”
• “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way.”

Edith Nesbit
b. 8-15-1858; London, England
d. 5-4-1924; New Romney, Kent, England

Edith Nesbit, one of the greatest children's writers of the 20th century, published her work as E. Nesbit. Best remembered as an author of The Railway Children, The Treasure Seekers and many other stories of magic and adventure, Nesbit and her husband were also founders of The Fabian Society, a British intellectual socialist movement.

Edith Nesbit quotes ~
• “Don't you think it's rather nice to think that we're in a book that God's writing? If I were writing a book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right – in the way that's best for us.”
“Do you really believe that, Mother?” Peter asked quietly.
“Yes,” she said, “I do believe it – almost always – except when I'm so sad that I can't believe anything. But even when I don't believe it, I know it's true – and I try to believe it.””
• “It is a curious thing that people only ask if you are enjoying yourself when you aren't.”

John Newbery: Father of Children's Literature
John Newbery:
Father of Children's Literature

John Newbery
b. 7-9-1713; Waltham St Lawrence, Berkshire, England
d. 12-22-1767; Canonbury House, Islington

John Newbery, the youngest son of a farmer, was apprenticed to a printer at age 16 and eventually became a publisher. He is best remembered as master of marketing books and as the “Father of Children's Literature”. The American Library Association created the John Newbery Medal in 1922 as an award for the “most distinguished contribution to American literature for children”.

Newbery's most popular children's book was The History of Little Goody Two-Shoes, possibly written by Oliver Goldsmith. He also was the publisher of science books for children: the most popular title was The Newtonian System of Philosophy Adapted to the Capacities of Young Gentlemen and Ladies.

FYI ~ Goldsmith based his character Mr. Primrose in The Vicar of Wakefield on Newbery.
