Nellie Bly Quotes

Please enjoy these encouraging quotes by Nellie Bly.

and asking to be released, but the more I endeavored
to assure them of my sanity,
the more they doubted it.
- Nellie Bly

but sewing does not employ one's mind.

and all the poor prisoners can do is to sit and ponder
over their hopeless fate.
- Nellie Bly

in the power of their keepers,
and how one could weep and plead for release,
and all of no avail, if the keepers were so minded.

and the patients had to try to choke down fresh fish,
just boiled in water, without salt, pepper or butter;
mutton,
beef, and potatoes without the faintest seasoning.
- Nellie Bly

in all probability for life.
In comparison, how much easier it would be to walk
to the gallows than to this tomb of living horrors!

the city they in all likelihood will never enter again.
It means liberty and life; it seems so near,
and yet heaven is not further from hell.
- Nellie Bly

after they saw everything different from what it had been while I was there.
Yet they did, and their report to the court advises
all the changes made that I had proposed.

I had, toward the last, been shut off from all visitors,

of me if I would rather be with them than in the asylum,
I was only too glad to give my consent.
- Nellie Bly

unfortunate crazy girl, and felt it my duty not to
shirk any of the disagreeable results that should follow.

and had not the faintest idea of what their actions were like.

her good morning and refusing to hear her pleas for
release? Even the sick ones know it is useless to say anything,
for the answer will be that it is their imagination.

What a mysterious thing madness is.
I have watched patients whose lips are forever sealed in a perpetual silence.
They live, breathe, eat; the human form is there,
but that something, which the body can live without,
but which cannot exist without the body,
was missing.
- Nellie Bly

People in the world can never imagine the length of
days to those in asylums.
They seemed never ending, and we welcomed any event
that might give us something to think about as well as talk of.
- Nellie Bly

It is only after one is in trouble that one realizes
how little sympathy and kindness there are in the world.
- Nellie Bly

I had looked forward so eagerly to leaving the horrible place,
yet when my release came and I knew that God's sunlight
was to be free for me again,
there was a certain pain in leaving.
- Nellie Bly

I always had a desire to know asylum life more thoroughly -
a desire to be convinced that the most helpless of God's creatures,
the insane, were cared for kindly and properly.

acquaintances, and others who share your life.
