Though she be but little, she is fierce.

By Carter.

Shakespeare’s enchanting work of love and dreams and friendship is full of rich language. And this one is a sparkler. It comes during a quarrel between two dear friends, Helena and Hermia. Although they are thick as thieves, Helena exclaims this — both a warning and a delightful compliment! Don’t you think this would be a fantastic fit in the room of a fierce little girl? Or in one of  sisters whose loves gets a bit tangled up sometimes? You can find this print in Emily’s shop right here.

P.S. — This series — illustrated quotes from children’s books — is a collaboration between Emily McDowell and myself. You can find the whole series here. We just loved this one so much, we had to use it!
