“After university, Annie [Smith Peck] was once again warned against the dangers of ~a lady~ moving around the country to different teaching jobs, let alone to Europe to carry on her studies, which she very much wanted to do. Her mother warned her what it might look like for a young woman to travel alone to Europe like a giant slut, but Annie replied: 'I have lived long enough to have got beyond trying to make all my actions satisfactory to my numerous friends and acquaintances.' Whack that over a sunset and put it on Instagram, friends.”

Not to care, not to want to see, to know, that is the callousness beyond redemption.”
