Quote of the Week

A MESSAGE FROM OLIVE SCHREINER TO THE WOMEN AND MEN OF
THE GENERATIONS OF THE 2OTH CENTURY AND THEREAFTER.
One word more I should like to add, as I may not again speak or write on this
subject. I should like to say to the men and women of the generations which will
come after us:
"You will look back at us with astonishment! You
will wonder at passionate struggles that
accomplished so little; at the, to you, obvious
paths to attain our ends which we did not take;
at the intolerable evils before which it will seem to
you we sat down passive; at the great truths
staring us in the face, which we failed to see; at
the truths we grasped at, but could never quite get
our fingers round. You will marvel at the labour
that ended in so little. But what you will never
know is how it was, thinking of you and for you,
that we struggled as we did and accomplished the
little which we have done. It was in the thought of
your larger realisation and a fuller life, that we
found consolation for the futilities of our own."
"What I aspired to be, and was not, comforts me." o.s.
From the introduction to her book “WOMEN AND LABOUR”
