I am not going to question your opinions. I am not going to meddle with your belief. I am not going to dictate to you mine. All that I say is, examine, inquire. Look into the nature of things. Search out the grounds of your opinions, the for and against. Know why you believe, understand what you believe, and possess a reason for the faith that is in you.
Frances Wright (1795-1852)
July 4th, 1828 at Robert Owen’s New Harmony community in Indiana.Wright was the first woman in America to address a mixed audience at a public event.
