There was a time when all these things would have passed me by, like the flitting figures of a theatre, sufficient for the amusement of an hour. But now, I have lost the power of looking merely on the surface.
-Lydia Maria Child, Letter; published in Letters from New York, vol. 1, Letter 39, 1843, April 27, 1843
