Anne Morrow Lindbergh
b. 6-22-1906; Englewood, NJ
d. 2-7-2001; Vermont

Anne Morrow Lindbergh, most remembered as the wife of aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh, wrote a college essay on women of the eighteenth century that was awarded the Elizabeth Montagu Prize, and the inspirational Gift from the Sea in 1955.

Anne's father was U.S. senator and diplomat and her mother served as president of Smith College. A family tradition was for her mother to gather all the children at 5 pm and read to them for an hour everyday.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh quotes ~
• “Don't wish me happiness - I don't expect to be happy it's gotten beyond that, somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor - I will need them all. ”
• “One can never pay in gratitude: one can only pay 'in kind' somewhere else in life.”
• “I believe that what woman resents is not so much giving herself in pieces as giving herself purposelessly.”
• “By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.”

Vachel Lindsay
b. 11-10-1879; Springfield, IL
d. 12-5-1931; depression & suicide

Called the Prairie Troubador, Vachel Lindsay is considered the father of modern singing poetry, or poetry that is mean to be sang or chanted. Between 1905 and 1914 Lindsay travelled the country, trading his poetry, as in the pamplet Rhymes to be Traded for Bread, for food and lodging. He also wrote what is considered the first critique of cinema - The Art of the Moving Picture.

Lindsay was contemporaneus with poets Edgar Lee Masters (also his biographer) and Carl Sandburg.

Vachel Lindsay quotes ~
• “I am unjust, but I can strive for justice. My life's unkind, but I can vote for kindness. I, the unloving, say life should be lovely. I, that am blind, cry out against my blindness.”
• “This is the sin against the Holy Ghost: -- / To speak of bloody power as right divine,/ And call on God to guard each vile chief's house,/ And for such chiefs, turn men to wolves and swine.”
• “You can't crush ideas by suppressing them. You can only crush them by ignoring them.”
• “To live in mankind is far more than to live in a name.”

Walter Lippmann
b. 9-23-1889; NYC
d. 12-14-1974

Reporter and political commentator Walter Lippman was awarded the 1958 and 1962 Pulitizer Prize for his syndicated newspaper column, “Today and Tomorrow”. He was the first to use the term ‘cold war’.

Lippman was an advisor several presidents: Woodrow Wilson in the drafting of Wilson's Fourteen Points, and highly critical of Lyndon Johnson's handling of the Vietnam War (Johnson later presented Lippmann with the Presidential Medal of Freedom).

Walter Lippmann quotes ~
• “Ideals are an imaginative understanding of that which is desirable in that which is possible.”
• “Our conscience is not the vessel of eternal verities. It grows with our social life, and a new social condition means a radical change in conscience.”
• “In a free society the state does not administer the affairs of men. It administers justice among men who conduct their own affairs.”
• “Most men, after a little freedom, have preferred authority with the consoling assurances and the economy of effort it brings. ”
• “. . . the function of news is to signalize an event, the function of truth is to bring to light the hidden facts, to set them in relation with each other, and make a picture of reality on which men can act.”
• “Brains, you know, are suspect in the Republican Party.”
