Mary Godwin Shelley
b. 8-30-1797; London, England
d. 2-1-1851; London

Mary Godwin Shelley, daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft and philosopher, novelist, and journalist William Godwin, was an English romantic/gothic novelist and the author of Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus. Frankenstein was the result of a competiton between friends to see who could write the scariest story in the summer of 1816 (volcanic eruption of Tabora in Indonesia).

She was married to poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

One theme of Frankenstein is animation of something non-living which continued in the prevalence of mechanical automatons as entertainment in traveling shows in “The Golden Age of Automata”, 1860-1910. Check out Robertson Davies' The Deptford Trilogy, or the ballet Coppelia.

Mary Shelley quotes ~
• “I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves.”
• “It is justice, not charity, that is wanting in the world.”
• “Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley
b. 8-8-1792; Field Place, Horsham, England
d. 7-8-1822; Viareggio, Grand Duchy of Tuscany (Italy)

Percy Bysshe Shelley, one of the major Romantic poets, is regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language. Shelley was famous for his association with John Keats and Lord Byron. The novelist Mary Godwin Shelley was his second wife.

Percy Bysshe Shelley quotes ~
• “Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.”
• “Fear not for the future, weep not for the past.”
• “If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”
• “Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder.”
• “A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.”

Richard Brinsley Sheridan quotes ~
• “Fertilizer does no good in a heap, but a little spread around works miracles all over.”
• “The surest way to fail is not to determine to succeed.
• “Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.”
• “There's no possibility of being witty without a little ill-nature; the malice of a good thing is the barb that makes it stick.”

Robert E. Sherwood
b. 4-4-1896; New Rochelle, NY
d. 11-14-1955; NYC (heart attack)

Playwright, editor, and screenwriter Robert E. Sherwood was an original member of the Algonuin Round Table. He was also a speech writer for FDR during WWII.

Sherwood was awarded the Pulitizer for Drama in 1936, 1939 and 1941, and for Drama in 1948. Sherwood's 1939 winner was “Abe Lincoln in Illinois”.

Robert E. Sherwood quotes ~
• “To be able to write a play a man must be sensitive, imaginative, naive, gullible, passionate; he must be something of an imbecile, something of a poet, something of a liar, something of a damn fool.”
• “The happiest miser on earth is the man who saves up every friend he can make.”
• “The trouble with me is, I belong to a vanishing race. I'm one of the intellectuals.”
