GAIL HAMILTON
(PSEUDONYM OF MARY ABIGAIL DODGE)
American teacher and writer
(1833 - 1896)

It is the crushed grape that gives out the blood-red wine: it is the suffering soul that breathes the sweetest melodies.
      - [Affliction]

Man has subdued the world, but woman has subdued man. Mind and muscle have won his victories; love and loveliness have gained hers. No monarch has been so great, no peasant so lowly, that he has not been glad to lay his best at the feet of a woman.
      - [Women]

Man pays deference to woman instinctively, involuntarily, not because she is beautiful or truthful or wise or foolish or proper, but because she is a woman, and he cannot help it. If she descends, he will lower to her level; if she rises, he will rise to her height.
      - [Women]

Men as yet need some help to their imagination. There remains still room for a little illusion. It is better for men, it is better for women, that each somewhat idealize the other. Much is lost when life has lost its atmosphere, and is reduced to naked fact.
      - [Imagination]

People cry out, and deplore the unremunerative employment of woman. The true want is the other way. Women really trained, and capable of good work, can command any wages or salaries.
      - [Employment]

There is generally no such thing as duty to the people who do it. They simply take life as it comes, meeting, not, shirking its demands, whether pleasant or unpleasant; and that is pretty much all there is of it.
      - [Duty]

Woman is largely occupied with man's work; in the sweat of her face the eats bread. It is like taking a Damascus blade to hew timber withal.
      - [Occupations]

Whatever an author puts between the two covers of his book is public property; whatever of himself he does not put there is his private property, as much as if he had never written a word.
      - Country Living and Country Thinking
         (preface) [Authorship]

Every person is responsible for all the good with the scope of his abilities, and for no more, and none can tell whose sphere is the largest.
      - Country Living and Country Thinking--Men and Women
        [Ability]
