Quote of the Day (Margaret Fuller, on Avoiding Falsehoods)

“It is astonishing what force, purity, and wisdom it requires for a human being to keep clear of falsehoods.”—Author, journalist, critic, and pioneering feminist Margaret Fuller (1810-1850), Notes from Cambridge, Massachusetts (July 1842) published in Memoirs of Margaret Fuller Ossoli (1852), Vol. II

(Copy by Southworth and Hawes of an 1846 daguerreotype by Albert Sands Southworth-- the only known surviving photo of Fuller.)

Ashamed to admit I read that headline as "Margaret Fuller on Avoiding Facebook." Which made sense, even if she does accept the universe.
