"He had concluded it was neither wise nor safe for republicans to take refuge in what he called mere negation. New circumstances demanded a new kind of reform- progressive reform. The Republican Party, he felt, should actually offer real solutions to real problems. The unprecedented, but reckless, growth that had transformed the country…was meant to continue, but the old natural laws of the marketplace were no longer adequate. Government, he believed, needed to step in to tame the market’s excesses and maintain necessary order."
From Ken Burns’ “The Roosevelts” on Teddy Roosevelt (a republican)
"Changing the way we talk is not political correctness run amok. It reflects an admirable willingness to acknowledge others who once were barely visible to the dominant culture, and to recognize that something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others."
David Plotz  (via thatkindofwoman)

"I long to hear that you have declared an independency. And, by the way, in the new code of laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation."

Abigail Adams (via femininefreak)

"Remember the ladies…"

In 1940, knowing that France was falling into the hands of the Germans, the workers of the Louvre took action. All 400,000 works were evacuated and sent to the south of France. In secret they transported the priceless paintings and statues, and held by wealthy families in Vichy,where they would remain for five years, only returning at the end of the war.The quick action of the workers without a doubt saved the masterpieces from becoming part of the over 5 million works that were looted by the Nazis during the war.
