More 1930’s & 40’s Notebooks

Continuing a look at these little notebooks, packed full of messages from Blantyre people during the 1930’s and 40s. Shared here for all to enjoy, the messages give advice and provide friendship support to a Blantyre lady. Some excellent little snippets including:


“Friendship oft would longer last, and troubles be prevented, if angry words were let go past, forgiven not resented.”


“A friend is a person who knows all about you and likes you just the same”


“Take Care – that the face which looks out from your mirror in the morning is a pleasant face. You may not see it again all day.” (But others do)


and finally, “the Nicest thing in the world is just aa fiend, a cosy sort of friend, with whom I am so much at home, I talk on without end, and whom at last i’ve finished all, the things i have to say, I know my chum will never give my little thoughts away. And that is why I come to you, when I’ve an hour to spend, because I always find you such, a cosy sort of friend.”
