Celebration Quotation – March 11, 2016

Today’s quote comes from The Taming of the Shrew:

"My tongue will tell the anger of my heart, or else my heart, concealing it, will break." The Taming of the Shrew, Act IV, Scene 3

The actress in the photo is Elsie Leslie (1881-1966).  Leslie was America’s first “child star” – she made her stage debut at the age of three, and was a recognized “star” at age six.  Leslie spent much of her life on the road, traveling from theatre to theatre, but she exchanged letters with many luminaries in the arts and politics – her “pen pals” included Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt, Edwin Booth, and Mark Twain.
