Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …
Every one says--Darwin to the contrary notwithstanding--that the present generation is not what the past was, that as a rule we are deteriorating. I think, for the most part, we are all more or less disposed to compliment the past at the expense of the present, just as we project a halo of fancy into the future.
-Women's Work in Modern Society, 1874
