„The one distinct feature of our Association has been the right of the individual opinion for every member.“

—  Susan Brownell Anthony, Context: The one distinct feature of our Association has been the right of the individual opinion for every member. We have been beset at every step with the cry that somebody was injuring the cause by the expression of some sentiments that differed with those held by the majority of mankind. The religious persecution of the ages has been done under what was claimed to be the command of God. I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do to their fellows, because it always coincides with their own desires.

„What can any individual do? Of that, every individual can judge. There is one thing that every individual can do, — they can see to it that they feel right.“

—  Harriet Beecher Stowe Abolitionist, author 1811 - 1896
An atmosphere of sympathetic influence encircles every human being; and the man or woman who feels strongly, healthily and justly, on the great interests of humanity, is a constant benefactor to the human race. See, then, to your sympathies in this matter! Are they in harmony with the sympathies of Christ? or are they swayed and perverted by the sophistries of worldly policy?
