Literary Birthday - 30 August
Happy Birthday, Mary Shelley, born 30 August 1797, died 1 Feb 1851 
Frankenstein Quotes
Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.
If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!
How dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to be greater than his nature will allow.
The different accidents of life are not so changeable as the feelings of human nature.
Every thing must have a beginning … and that beginning must be linked to something that went before.
What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow.
It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn.
Shelley was an English novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer. She is remembered for her Gothic novel Frankenstein. She was married to the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley.
