Mary Wollstonecraft, Happy 255th

“My dreams were all my own; I accounted for them to nobody; they were my refuge when annoyed - my dearest pleasure when free.” - Mary Wollstonecraft

Born: April 27, 1759, Spitalfields, UK. Died: September 10, 1797, London

“Weakness may excite tenderness, and gratify the arrogant pride of man; but the lordly caresses of a protector will not gratify a noble mind that pants for, and deserves to be respected. Fondness is a poor substitute for friendship.”

- Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Woma
