Horace Greeley
b. 2-3-1811; Amherst, NH
d. 11-29-1872

Newpaper editor Horace Greeley was a founder of the Republican party, reformer and politician. As a supporter of the Homestead Act, he advised young men to “Go West”.

Horace Greeley quotes ~
• “The illusion that times that were are better than those that are, has probably pervaded all ages.”
• “The way we do things is to begin.”
• “Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wings, only one thing endures and that is character.”
• “While boasting of our noble deeds we're careful to conceal the ugly fact that by an iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery.”

Popular author Graham Greene explored the modern world's moral and political issues through religious themes. Among his novels are The Third Man, Our Man in Havana and Brighton Rock.

Graham Greene quotes ~
• “A solitary laugh is often a laugh of superiority.”
• “Failure too is a form of death.”
• “God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed - that is the meaning of evolution.”
• “No human being can really understand another, and no one can arrange another's happiness.”
• “My two fingers on a typewriter have never connected with my brain. My hand on a pen does. A fountain pen, of course. Ball-point pens are only good for filling out forms on a plane.”

Lady Isabella Augusta Gregory
née Persse

Dramatist and folklorist Augusta, Lady Gregory, cofounded with William Butler Yeats and others, the Irish Literary Theatre and the Abbey Theatre. George Bernard Shaw once called her “the greatest living Irishwoman”.

Lady Gregory quotes ~
• “Well, there's no one at all, they do be saying, but is deserving of some punishment from the very minute of his birth.”
• “If I had not married I should not have learned the quick enrichment of sentences that one gets in conversation; had I not been widowed I should not have found the detachment of mind, the leisure for observation necessary to give insight into character, to express and interpret it. Loneliness made me rich - full, as Bacon says.”

The Brothers Grimm
b. 1-4-1785 - d. 9-20-1863;
b. 2-24-1786 - d. 12-16-1859
Hanau, Germany

The Grimm Brothers were philologists, combinating the study of literary criticism, history, and linguistics from written historical sources. Though beginning their university studies with law (following their father) the brothers are best known for transcribing and preserving the tales of the peasant classes.

The brothers are also considered as precursors of the German democratic movement. In 1837, they and five of their fellow professors, known as the Göttinger Sieben (The Göttingen Seven), were dismissed from their positions for accusing King Ernest Augustus of Hanover as violating the constitution. (FYI - Ernest Augustus was the uncle of Victoria, who became queen of England in 1837).
