Olive Emilie Albertina Schreiner
b. 3-24-1855; South Africa
d. 12-11-1920

Author, pacifist and political activist Olive Schreiner is best known for her first novel The Story of an African Farm, published in 1883 under the pseudomyn Ralph Iron.

The novel, considerd to be one of the first feminist novels, was an immediate success, fueled by controversary of addressing agnostism and the treatment of women. Today it is considered semi-autobiographical.

Schreiner also wrote an introduction to Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Women, and was in contact with Havelock Ellis and Mahatma Gandhi.

Olive Schreiner quotes ~
• “Men are like the earth and we are the moon; we turn always one side to them, and they think there is no other, because they don't see it / but there is.”
• “My feeling is that there is nothing in life but refraining from hurting others, and comforting those that are sad.”
• “The troubles of the young are soon over; they leave no external mark. If you wound the tree in its youth the bark will quickly cover the gash; but when the tree is very old, peeling the bark off, and looking carefully, you will see the scar there still. All that is buried is not dead.”
• “Everything has two sides - the outside that is ridiculous, and the inside that is solemn.”
• “There was never a great man who had not a great mother.”
• “A little weeping, a little wheedling, a little self-degradation, a little careful use of our advantages, and then some man will say, “Come, be my wife!” With good looks and youth marriage is easy to attain. There are men enough; but a woman who has sold herself, even for a ring and a new name, need hold her skirt aside for no creature in the street. They both earn their bread in one way. Marriage for love is the most beautiful external symbol of the union of souls; marriage without it is the least clean traffic that defiles the world.”
• “We all enter the world little plastic beings, with so much natural force, perhaps, but for the rest / blank; and the world tells us what we are to be, and shapes us by the ends it sets before us. To you it says / Work; and to us it says / Seem! To you it says / As you approximate to man's highest ideal of God, as your arm is strong and your knowledge great, and the power to labor is with you, so you shall gain all that human heart desires. To us it says / Strength shall not help you, nor knowledge, nor labor. You shall gain what men gain, but by other means. And so the world makes men and women.”

Small Is Beautiful  Economics as If People Mattered
Small Is Beautiful:
Economics as If People Mattered

E. F. Schumacher
b. 8-16-1911; Bonn, Germany
d. 9-4-1977; Switzerland

Ernst Friedrich Schumacher is best known “for his critique of Western economies and his proposals for human-scale, decentralized and appropriate technologies.”

E. F. Schumacher quotes ~
• “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” ~ Small is Beautiful (SIB)
• “Perhaps we cannot raise the winds. But each of us can put up the sail, so that when the wind comes we can catch it.” ~ SIB
• “Education can help us only if it produces “whole men”. The truly educated man is not a man who knows a bit of everything, not even the man who knows all the details of all subjects (if such a thing were possible): the “whole man” in fact, may have little detailed knowledge of facts and theories, he may treasure the Encyclopædia Britannica because “she knows and he needn’t”, but he will be truly in touch with the centre. He will not be in doubt about his basic convictions, about his view on the meaning and purpose of his life. He may not be able to explain these matters in words, but the conduct of his life will show a certain sureness of touch which stems from this inner clarity.” ~ SIB
• “From the point of view of the employer, it is in any case simply an item of cost, to be reduced to a minimum if it cannot be eliminated altogether, say, by automation. From the point of view of the workman, it is a 'disutility'; to work is to make a sacrifice of one's leisure and comfort, and wages are a kind of compensation for the sacrifice.” ~ A Guide for the Perplexed (AGFTP)
• “From a Buddhist point of view, this is standing the truth on its head by considering goods as more important than people and consumption as more important than creative activity. It means shifting the emphasis from the worker to the product of work, that is, from the human to the sub-human, surrender to the forces of evil.” ~ AGFTP
• “The Buddhist view, “takes the function of work to be at least threefold”: “to give a man a chance to utilize and develop his faculties; to enable him to overcome his egocentredness by joining with other people in a common task; and to bring forth the goods and services needed for a becoming existence.” ~ AGFTP
• “... to organize work in such a manner that it becomes meaningless, boring, stultifying, or nerve-racking for the worker would be little short of criminal; it would indicate a greater concern with goods than with people, an evil lack of compassion and a soul-destroying degree of attachment to the most primitive side of this worldly existence.” ~ AGFTP
• “Anything that we can destroy, but are unable to make is, in a sense, sacred, and all our 'explanations' of it do not explain anything.” ~ AGFTP

Albert Schweitzer
b. 1-14-1875; Alsace-Lorraine, Germany
d. 9-4-1965, Lambaréné, Gabon, Africa

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) was a theologian, philosopher, and widely acclaimed as an organist for interpreting the works of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Deciding “man can no longer live his life for himself alone,” he left his career in Europe to finance, build, and equip a hospital in Equatorial Africa.

He articulated a philosophy of ‘reverence for life’ to get beyond an improverished understanding of reality. Insisting nothing comes to pass without inwardness, he proclaimed a “faith in a new humanity, casting it as a torch into the darkness of our age.”

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952.

Dred Scott
b. 1799; Virginia
d. 9-17-1858; St. Louis, MO

Dred Scott sued unsuccessfully for his freedom in the famous Supreme Court case Dred Scott v. Sandford of 1857. The case said that a slave owner would not lose their property purchased in a state where slavery was “legal” if they brought their slaves into a state where slavery was not permitted.

Dred Scott died of tuberculosis three months after being emanicpated by his original owner; his wife Harriet survived him by 18 years.
