  • ⋅Being a woman has only bothered me in climbing trees. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅In America, public opinion is the leader. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅But with the slow menace of a glacier, depression came on. No one had any measure of its progress; no one had any plan for stopping it. Everyone tried to get out of its way. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅Most of man's problems upon this planet, in the long history of the race, have been met and solved either partially or as a whole by experiment based on common sense and carried out with courage. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅The door might not be opened to a woman again for a long, long time, and I had a kind of duty to other women to walk in and sit down on the chair that was offered, and so establish the right of others long hence and far distant in geography to sit in the high seats. /Frances Perkins

  • ⋅The quality of his being one with the people, of having no artificial or natural barriers between him and them, made it possible for him to be a leader without ever being or thinking of being a dictator. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅This leads to a question - if a great many people are for a certain project, is it necessarily right? If the vast majority is for it, is it even more certainly right? This, to be sure, is one of the tricky points of democracy. The minority often turns out to be right, and though one believes in the efficacy of the democratic process, one has also to recognize that the demand of the many for a particular project at a particular time may mean only disaster. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅It is not the nature of man, as I see it, ever to be quite satisfied with what he has in life.... Contentment tends to breed laxity, but a healthy discontent keeps us alert to the changing needs of our time. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅The people are what matter to government, and a government should aim to give all the people under its jurisdiction the best possible life. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅Most of man's problems upon this planet, in the long history of the race, have been met and solved either partially or as a whole by experiment based on common sense and carried out with courage. /Frances Perkins

  • ⋅I came to Washington to work for God, FDR, and the millions of forgotten, plain common workingmen. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅Out of our first century of national life we evolved the ethical principle that it was not right or just that an honest and industrious man should live and die in misery. He was entitled to some degree of sympathy and security. Our conscience declared against the honest workman's becoming a pauper, but our eyes told us that he very often did. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅The door might not be opened to a woman again for a long, long time, and I had a kind of duty to other women to walk in and sit down on the chair that was offered, and so establish the right of others long hence and far distant in geography to sit in the high seats. /Frances Perkins
  • ⋅But with the slow menace of a glacier, depression came on. No one had any measure of its progress; no one had any plan for stopping it. Everyone tried to get out of its way. /Frances Perkins

  • ⋅It's only when we're relaxed that the thing way down deep in all of us - call it the subconscious mind, the spirit, what you will - has a chance to well up and tell us how we shall go. /Frances Perkins

  • ⋅Our idea of what constitutes social good has advanced with the procession of the ages, from those desperate times when just to keep body and soul together was an achievement, to the great present when "good" includes an agreeable, stable civilization accessible to all, the opportunity of each to develop his particular genius and the privilege of mutual usefulness. /Frances Perkins

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
