To Alice Drysdale Vickery

Whose prophetic vision of liberated womanhood has been an inspiration

     "I dream of a world in which the spirits of women are flames     stronger than fire, a world in which modesty has become courage     and yet remains modesty, a world in which women are as unlike     men as ever they were in the world I sought to destroy, a world     in which women shine with a loveliness of self-revelation as     enchanting as ever the old legends told, and yet a world which     would immeasurably transcend the old world in the self-sacrificing     passion of human service.  I have dreamed of that world ever since     I began to dream at all."
