Beatrix Potter (1866 - 1943)
- My education finished 9th July. Whatever moral good and general knowledge I may have got from it, I have retained no literal rules. I don't believe I can repeat a single line of any language. â€¦ I regret German very much, French I can read alone, history is still going on, the rules of geography and grammar are tiresome, there is no general word to express the feelings I have always entertained towards arithmetic.
