He once said that "all the things I've been doing, it's the thing I'm proudest of, because no movement has done more good for the people of Ireland, north and south, than the credit union movement."

    Not only do our wives need support, but our children need our deep involvement in their lives. If this period [the early years] of primitive needs and primitive caretaking passes without us, it is lost forever. We can be involved in other ways, but never again on this profoundly intimate level.
    Augustus Y. Napier (20th century)

    Not only do our wives need support, but our children need our deep involvement in their lives. If this period [the early years] of primitive needs and primitive caretaking passes without us, it is lost forever. We can be involved in other ways, but never again on this profoundly intimate level.
    Augustus Y. Napier (20th century)

    She had to lean away.
    She dared not stir a foot,
    Lest movement should provoke
    The demon of pursuit
    That slumbers in a brute.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    She had brought love to the union and he had brought a longing after the flesh.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    It may be tempting to focus on the fact that, even among those who support equality, men’s involvement as fathers remains a far distance from what most women want and most children need. Yet it is also important to acknowledge how far and how fast many men have moved towards a pattern that not long ago virtually all men considered anathema.
    Katherine Gerson (20th century)

    “What are the characteristics of today’s world so that one may recognize it by them?” It pays pensions and borrows money: credit and monuments.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
