Famous quotes containing the word spencer:

    The essence of democracy is its assurance that every human being should so respect himself and should be so respected in his own personality that he should have opportunity equal to that of every other human being to “show what he was meant to become.”
    —Anna Garlin Spencer (1851–1931)
