JANE TAYLOR
English children's writer and poet with her sister Ann Taylor
(1783 - 1824)

Our conjectures are like our hopes.
      - [Conjecture]

I thank the goodness and the grace
  Which on my birth have smiled,
    And made me, in these Christian days
      A happy Christian child.
      - Child's Hymn of Praise [Christianity]

Though man a thinking being is defined,
  Few use the grand prerogative of mind.
    How few think justly of the thinking few!
      How many never think, who think they do.
      - Essays in Rhyme--On Morals and Manners--Prejudice
         (essay I, st. 45) [Thought]

He minded not his friends' advice
  But followed his own wishes;
    And one most cruel trick of his
      Was that of catching fishes.
      - The Little Fisherman [Fishing]
