    To look at the cross-section of any plan of a big city is to look at something like the section of a fibrous tumor.
    —Frank Lloyd Wright (1869–1959)

    ...there was the annual Fourth of July picketing at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. ...I thought it was ridiculous to have to go there in a skirt. But I did it anyway because it was something that might possibly have an effect. I remember walking around in my little white blouse and skirt and tourists standing there eating their ice cream cones and watching us like the zoo had opened.
    Martha Shelley, U.S. author and social activist. As quoted in Making History, part 3, by Eric Marcus (1992)

    To look at the cross-section of any plan of a big city is to look at something like the section of a fibrous tumor.
    —Frank Lloyd Wright (1869–1959)

    Persecution for opinion is the master vice of society.
    —Frances Wright (1795–1852)
