Helen Beatrix Potter was a well-known English author who specialized in children’s books during the late 19th century and early 20th century Britain. Along with her writing, she was also a conservationist and natural scientist. Potter wrote over 30 books but is primarily famous for her work ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ and ‘24 children’s Tales’. Even though she had limited academic opportunities, she’s held in high regards in the field of mycology due to her study and water colours of fungi. Potter was also an avid painter. She drew inspirations from nature which held beauty of flora and fauna coupled with exquisite landscapes. Her books are still popular, which are published in many languages. Lately, Potter’s stories have taken the form of ballets, songs, animations and are retold in an innovative manner. Being a dedicated conservationist, she worked towards the preservation of Lake District National Park in Lancashire, England. Let us go through some of the greatest quotes from this legend in the history of English Literature.
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.
I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense.
