Jane Addams Day

In honor of the first annual Jane Addams Day, here are a few quotes from the social reformer, Nobel Peace Prize recipient, and pro-life feminist:

“The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.”

“Civilization is a method of living and an attitude of equal respect for all people.”

“Social advance depends as much upon the process through which it is secured as upon the result itself.”
