    In the adjustment of the new order of things, we women demand an equal voice; we shall accept nothing less.
    —Carrie Chapman Catt (1859–1947)

    Is there something in trade that dessicates and flattens out, that turns men into dried leaves at the age of forty? Certainly there is. It is not due to trade but to intensity of self- seeking, combined with narrowness of occupation.... Business has destroyed the very knowledge in us of all other natural forces except business.
    —John Jay Chapman (1862–1933)
