    Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women’s issues.
    Charlotte Bunch (b. 1944)

    Out where the smile dwells a little longer,
    That’s where the West begins.
    Arthur Chapman (1873–1935)

    Speed is good only when wisdom leads the way. The end of this journey, whether to the high horizons of hope or the depths of destruction, will be determined by the collective wisdom of the people who live on this shrinking planet.
    James Poe (1921–1980)

    Lastly, his tomb
    Shall list and founder in the troughs of grass
    And none shall speak his name.
