Eugene Field was born 2 September 1850, and died 4 November 1895.
- No book can be appreciated until it has been slept with and dreamed over.
- Not so, however, with books, for books cannot change. A thousand years hence they are what you find them to-day, speaking the same words, holding forth the same cheer, the same promise, the same comfort; always constant, laughing with those who laugh and weeping with those who weep.
- Ideas came with explosive immediacy, like an instant birth. Human thought is like a monstrous pendulum; it keeps swinging from one extreme to the other.
- It always was the biggest fish I caught that got away.
- The best of all physicians Is apple pie and cheese!
Eugene Field was an American writer, best known for his children’s poetry and humorous essays.
