But actually the intelligent care of children in our society is balanced by a crass indifference to the helplessness of infancy and youth.

    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    Tension is ... a prerequisite for creative living.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    We have been weakened in our resistance to the professional anti-Communists because we know in our hearts that our so-called democracy has excluded millions of citizens from a normal life and the normal American privileges of health, housing and education.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    I want to know and to be and to do.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
