It requires some courage to write one’s biography. Every human soul has its secret chamber, which no one is allowed to invade. Our uncomforted sorrows, our tenderest and most exquisite loves, our remediless disappointments, our highest aspirations, our constantly baffled efforts for higher attainments, are known only to ourselves and God.
Mary Ashton Rice Livermore, The Story of My Life p. viii (Universalist, abolitionist, author, reformer, minister)
