Pioneers

“They cut a path through tangled underwood
Of old traditions out to broader ways.
They lived to hear their work called brave and good,
But oh! the thorns before the crown of bays.
The world gives lashes to its pioneers
Until the goal is reached, then deafening cheers.”

-- Anna Howard Shaw (19th century pastor, medical doctor, women’s suffrage activist)
