Margaret Fuller Quotes

Man tells his aspiration in his God; but in his demon he shows his depth of experience.

Margaret Fuller

Would that the simple maxim, that honesty is the best policy, might be laid to heart; that a sense of the true aim of life might elevate the tone of politics and trade till public and private honor become identical.

Margaret Fuller

Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live.

Margaret Fuller

The especial genius of women I believe to be electrical in movement, intuitive in function, spiritual in tendency.

Margaret Fuller

I have urged on woman independence of man, not that I do not think the sexes mutually needed by one another, but because in woman this fact has led to an excessive devotion, which has cooled love, degraded marriage and prevented it her sex from being what it should be to itself or the other. I wish woman to live, first for God's sake. Then she will not take what is not fit for her from a sense of weakness and poverty. Then if she finds what she needs in man embodied, she will know how to love and be worthy of being loved.
