What Maisie Knew

Ideas of Her Own

"Little Maisie was very naughty one day, crying and breaking up her toys, kicking and screaming, and ending up by spitting at her nurse.

Her mother gave her a good talking to. "I can't see what gives you such ideas," said her mother, "unless it is the devil."

"Maybe the devil made me kick and cry," said Maisie, "but that spitting was my own idea." ..."
