Her silver visage in the watery glass,
Decking with liquid pearl the bladed grass.”

“... the sentimentalist ... exclaims: Would you have a woman step down from her pedestal in order to enter practical life? Yes! A thousand times, yes! If we can really find, after a careful search, any women mounted upon pedestals, we should willingly ask them to step down in order that they may meet and help to uplift their sisters. Freedom and justice for all are infinitely more to be desired than pedestals for a few.”
—Bertha Honore Potter Palmer (18491918)
