Words from wise women
In light of the election, I offer some thoughts gleaned from folks wittier, wiser, & sometimes much snarkier than I.
“The vote is a power, a weapon of offense & defense, a prayer.”
-Carrie Chapman Catt
“An election is coming. Universal peace is declared, & the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry.”
“Though in paradise the lion will lay down with the lamb, in Paradise they will not have to submit their rival political views to general election.”
-Amelia E. Barr
“Money was the manure of politics.”
“The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.”
“I’ve seen public opinion shift like a wind & put out the very fire it lighted.”
“A Platform is something a candidate stands for & the voters fall for.”
“Women are young at politics, but they are old at suffering; soon they will learn that through politics they can prevent some kinds of suffering.”
May the election itself & the week following it both go more smoothly than you anticipate. And if you have comments about the quotes, please share them.
