When a just cause reaches its flood-tide...whatever stands in its way must fall before its overwhelming force.
White supremacy will be strengthened, not weakened, by women's suffrage.
The vote is a power, a weapon of offense and defense, a prayer.
Do not stand in the way of the next step in human progress. No one living who reads the signs of the times but realizes that woman suffrage must come. We are working for the ballot as a matter of justice and as a step for human betterment.
If we learn from the experience, there is no failure, only delayed victory.
No written law has ever been more binding than unwritten custom supported by popular opinion.
Everybody counts in applying democracy. And there will never be a true democracy until every responsible and law-abiding adult in it, without regard to race, sex, color or creed has his or her own inalienable and unpurchasable voice in government.
In the adjustment of the new order of things, we women demand an equal voice; we shall accept nothing less.
Service to a just cause rewards the worker with more real happiness and satisfaction than any other venture of life.
Roll up your sleeves, set your mind to making history, and wage such a fight for liberty that the whole world will respect our sex.
