Beatrix Potter Quotes

“All outward forms of religion are almost useless, and are the causes of endless strife. . . . Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself and never mind the rest.”

“Thank God I have the seeing eye, that is to say, as I lie in bed I can walk step by step on the fells and rough land seeing every stone and flower and patch of bog and cotton pass where my old legs will never take me again.”

“Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.”

I cannot rest, I must draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me it is a stronger desire than ever.

Quotes from A Tale of Peter Rabbit

"ONCE upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were
Flopsy,
Mopsy,
Cotton-tail,
and Peter.
They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree."

"Don't go into Mr. McGregor's garden: your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor."

"Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries:"

"But round the end of a cucumber frame, whom should he meet but Mr. McGregor!"
