HARRIET MARTINEAU
English social reformer and miscellaneous writer
(1802 - 1876)

A soul preoccupied with great ideas best performs small duties.
      - [Ideas]

Beneath this starry arch,
  Naught resteth or is still;
    But all things hold their march
      As if by one great will.
        Move one, move all:
          Hark to the footfall!
            On, on, forever.
      - [Progress]

I am sure that no traveler seeing things through author spectacles can see them as they are.
      - [Traveling]

I think that few people are aware how early it is right to respect the modesty of an infant.
      - [Modesty]

If a test of civilization be sought, none can be so sure as the condition of that half of society over which the other half has power.
      - [Civilization]

It never enters the lady's head that the wet-nurse's baby probably dies.
      - [Selfishness]

Men who pass most comfortably through this world are those who possess good digestions and hard hearts.
      - [Comfort]

Must love be ever treated with profaneness as a mere illusion? or with coarseness as a mere impulse? or with fear as a mere disease? or with shame as a mere weakness? or with levity as a mere accident? whereas it is a great mystery and a great necessity, lying at the foundation of human existence, morality, and happiness,--mysterious, universal, inevitable as death.
      - [Love]

School is no place of education for any children whatever till their minds are well put in action. This is the work which has to be done at home, and which may be done in all homes where the mother is a sensible woman.
      - [Education]

Women, like men, must be educated with a view to action, or their studies cannot be called education.
      - [Education]

You had better live your best and act your best and think your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomorrows that follow.
      - [Preparation]

Day-thoughts feed nightly dreams;
  And sorrow tracketh wrong,
    As echo follows song.
      - Hymn [Sorrow]
