Maria Weston Chapman
We may draw good out of evil; we must not do evil, that good may come.
Let us rise in the moral power of womanhood; and give utterance to the voice of outraged mercy, and insulted justice, and eternal truth, and mighty love and holy freedom.
Slavery can only be abolished by raising the character of the people who compose the nation; and that can be done only by showing them a higher one.
Grudge no expense – yield to no opposition – forget fatigue – till, by the strength of prayer and sacrifice, the spirit of love shall have overcome .
