    It is wonderful when a calculation is made, how little the mind is actually employed in the discharge of any profession.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    ... women of the North, I ask you to rise up with earnest, honest purpose, and go forward in the way of right, fearlessly, as independent human beings, responsible to God alone for the discharge of every duty, for the faithful use of every gift, the good Father has given you. Forget conventionalisms; forget what the world will say, whether you are in your place or out of your place; think your best thoughts, speak your best words, do your best works, looking to your own conscience for approval.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
