Famous quotes by meridel le sueur:

    What happens in a strike happens not to one person alone.... It is a crisis with meaning and potency for all and prophetic of a future. The elements in crisis are the same, there is a fermentation that is identical. The elements are these: a body of men, women and children, hungry; an organization of feudal employers out to break the back of unionization; and the government Labor Board sent to ‘negotiate’ between this hunger and this greed.
    Meridel Le Sueur (b. 1900)
