Famous quotes by agnes e. meyer:

    ... democracy is not only service, action, brotherhood—it is spirit—spirit free, indefinable, all-pervasive, that holds us to its revelations even when we seek to escape them.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    I am convinced that our American society will become more and more vulgarized and that it will be fragmentized into contending economic, racial and religious pressure groups lacking in unity and common will, unless we can arrest the disintegration of the family and of community solidarity.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    It is high time we realized that the havoc wrought in human life and ideals by a technological revolution and too long ignored has caught up with us.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    The chief lesson of the Depression should never be forgotten. Even our liberty-loving American people will sacrifice their freedom and their democratic principles if their security and their very lives are threatened by another breakdown of our free enterprise system. We can no more afford another general depression than we can afford another total war, if democracy is to survive.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
