Mid Week Quote: Anna Botsford Comstock


My chosen quote this week is by Anna Botsford Comstock (1854-1930) who was an acclaimed author, illustrator, and educator of natural studies. She was the first female professor at Cornell University and her 900 page work The Handbook of Nature Study is now in its 24th edition.

“I look upon a year lived as a year earned; and each year earned means a greater treasury of experience and power laid up against time of need.”

Anna Botsford Comstock

Happy Reading
