Vorse

Famous quotes containing the word vorse:

    English audiences of working people are like an instrument that responds to the player. Thought ripples up and down them, and if in some heart the speaker strikes a dissonance there is a swift answer. Always the voice speaks from gallery or pit, the terrible voice which detaches itself in every English crowd, full of caustic wit, full of irony or, maybe, approval.
    —Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)

    ... no one knows anything about a strike until he has seen it break down into its component parts of human beings.
    —Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)

    Before Lawrence, I had known a good deal about labor, but I had not felt about it. I had not got angry. In Lawrence I got angry. I wanted to do something about it.
    —Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)
