Minna Antrim — American Writer born on December 29, 1861,

Minna Thomas Antrim was an American writer. She is famous for the quote "Experience is a great teacher, but she sends in terrific bills.".. (wikipedia)

A beautiful woman delights the eye; a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one, the soul.
That one woman is capable of loving another is an historical truth; but never yet lived one who could not listen to her own praises at the expense of her adored friend.
Between flattery and admiration there often flows a river of contempt.
Experience is a good teacher, but she sends in terrific bills.
A homely face and no figure have aided many women heavenward.
