"'Once upon a time, there were four girls, who had enough to eat and drink and wear, a good many comforts and pleasures, kind friends and parents who loved them dearly, and yet they were not contented.' (Here the listeners stole sly looks at one another, and began to sew diligently.) ‘These girls were anxious to be good and made many excellent resolutions, but they did not keep them very well, and were constantly saying, ‘If only we had this, ‘or ‘If we could only do that'..."

- Louisa May Alcott, Little Women


According to Louisa May Alcott: Her Life, Letters, and Journals, after Little Women became a success, Louisa May Alcott earned handsome sums for new stories as well as a steady income from her previous work. So, she was able to provide very well for her family, something that gave her great pleasure; her own desires were very simple, but she gave generously to her family and wanted to grant their every desire.
