Laura Ingalls Wilder Quote and Printable

At my home, five of us are currently using a computer or Chromebook for work or school. Laura Ingalls Wilder wouldn't have been able to imagine such a thing in her lifetime. However, her wisdom lives on.

Please note: If you are reading this blog post in an email, you may not be able to see all images or click on links unless you go to the blog by clicking the title of today's blog post.

In her regular column for the Missouri Ruralist, on February 5, 1916, Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote
Some old-fashioned things, like fresh air and sunshine, are hard to beat.
As written in the Missouri Ruralist, 1916.

 This speaks to me, especially as our work and living habits have changed due to COVID-19. We're home so we can be safe. Thankfully the sun still shines most days. Fresh air and sunshine really do improve our days.

If this quote speaks to you, consider downloading the Laura Ingalls Wilder quote poster. (It has a much smaller watermark than what you see above.) Or share it on social media to remind others of Laura's wisdom.

(If you're interested, I have free quote printables available on my author blog. No email address needed.)

Or you can drink out of my favorite mug! It's from my friend's Etsy shop, A Fine Quotation. It has a drawing of pioneer girl Laura and the fresh air and sunshine quote on the backside! (I've purchased a few of her mugs. They're wonderful...for me and as gifts.)

Laura wrote for the Missouri Ruralist between 1911 and 1924 when she and Almanzo lived in Mansfield, Missouri. If you want to read Laura's full article, I highly recommend Laura Ingalls Wilder Farm Journalist: Writings from the Ozarks (affiliate link). It's over 300 pages of Laura's wisdom which she wrote for the Missouri Journalist. Stephen W. Hines edited the book. Here's a blog post about the writing career of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Be well, my friends!

Happy Trails! ~ Annette
