Famous quotes containing the words anthony and/or cunningham:

    It is cruel for you to leave your daughter, so full of hope and resolve, to suffer the humiliations of disfranchisement she already feels so keenly, and which she will find more and more galling as she grows into the stronger and grander woman she is sure to be. If it were your son who for any cause was denied his right to have his opinion counted, you would compass sea and land to lift the ban from him.
    —Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    A wet sheet and a flowing sea,
    A wind that follows fast
    And fills the white and rustling sail
    And bends the gallant mast;
    —Allan Cunningham (1784–1842)
