Citações Susan B. Anthony


„Eu nasci uma herege. Desconfio de gente que sabe tanto sobre o que Deus quer que elas façam aos outros“

„Não confio em gente que sabe exatamente o que Deus quer que elas façam. Sempre coincide com aquilo que elas próprias desejam“


„Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these.“

„Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.“

„I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet.“

„I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.“

„Woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself.“

„Forget conventionalisms; forget what the world thinks of you stepping out of your place; think your best thoughts, speak your best words, work your best works, looking to your own conscience for approval.“


„Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.“

„I was born a heretic. I always distrusted people who know so much about what God wants them to do to their fellows.“

„I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.“

„Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences...“


„There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.“

„It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union.... Men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less“

„Failure is Impossible“

„I pray every single moment of my life; not on my knees but with my work. My prayer is to lift women to equality with men. Work and worship are one with me.“
