“... the structure of our public morality crashed to earth. Above its grave a tombstone read, Be toleranteven of evil. Logically the next step would be to say to our commonwealths criminals, I disagree that its all right to rob and murder, but naturally I respect your opinion. Tolerance is only complacence when it makes no distinction between right and wrong.”
—Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 2, ch. 2 (1962)
“Some day the workers will take possession of your city hall, and when we do, no child will be sacrificed on the altar of profit!”
—Mother Jones (18301930)
“I was born a mechanic, and made a barrel before I was ten years old. The cooper told my father, Fanny made that barrel, and has done it quicker and better than any boy I have had after six months training. My father looked at it and said, What a pity that you were not born a boy so that you could be good for something. Run into the house, child, and go to knitting.”
—Frances D. Gage (18081884)
