Who is agnes e. meyer?

Famous quotes by agnes e. meyer:

    We Americans are supposed to be overly concerned about the child. But actually the intelligent care of children in our society is balanced by a crass indifference to the helplessness of infancy and youth.

    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    Once the pursuit of truth begins to haunt the mind, it becomes an ideal never wholly attained.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    ... dependence upon material possessions inevitably results in the destruction of human character.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    ... democracy is not only service, action, brotherhood—it is spirit—spirit free, indefinable, all-pervasive, that holds us to its revelations even when we seek to escape them.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    ... teaching to me was anathema, chiefly because it would condemn me to a world of petticoats.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
