née Buell

d. 4-30-1879; Philadelphia

Sarah Josepha Hale, herself an autodidact (self-educating), was an early activist for women's education and property rights, as well as teaching school. Her attitude was women were most powerful in domestic roles, and thus didn't support women's suffrage.

Hale is best remembered for being editor of Godey Lady's Book, publishing the work of other women authors, and as the author of the nursery rhymeMary Had a Little Lamb.” She spearheaded the fundraising for the completion of the Bunker Hill Monument, the preservation of George Washington's plantation at Mount Vernon, was primary in the establishment of a National Day of Thanksgiving (Lincoln, 1863), and helped found Vassar College.

Hale was one of the first American novelist with Northwood; or, Life north and south: showing the true character of both, a story about slavery.

Sarah Josepha Hale quotes ~
• “There is small danger of being starved in our land of plenty; but the danger of being stuffed is imminent.”
• “In this age of innovation, perhaps no experiment will have an influence more important on the character and happiness of our society than the granting to females the advantages of a systematic and thorough education.”
• “Nor need we power or splendor, wide hall or lordly dome; the good, the true, the tender- these form the wealth of home.”
• “No influence is so powerful as that of the mother.”
• “There is something in the decay of nature that awakens thought, even in the most trifling mind.”
• “A blessing on the printer's art! – Books are the mentors of the heart.”
• “I have learned to judge of men by their own deeds, and not to make the accident of birth the standard of their merit.”

Educator and author educator Edith Hamilton was “recognized as the greatest woman Classicist”. She was sixty-two years old when The Greek Way, her first book, was published in 1930; and her 1942 Mythology is still a classroom standard introductory text.

Edith Hamilton quote ~
• “To be able to be caught up into the world of thought – that is educated.”
• “Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.”
• “There are few efforts more conducive to humility than that of the translator trying to communicate an incommunicable beauty. Yet, unless we do try, something unique and never surpassed will cease to exist except in the libraries of a few inquisitive book lovers.”
• “Great art is the expression of a solution of the conflict between the demands of the world without and that within.”
• “When the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.”
