A man’s personality actuates and quickens his whole body. If anyone said it was unsuitable for the man’s power to be in the toe, he would be thought silly, because while granting that a man penetrates and actuates the whole of his body, he denied his presence in the part. Similarly, no one who admits the presence of the Word of God in the universe should think it unsuitable for him a single human body to be by him actuated and enlightened.

The Beecher Tradition : Isabella Beecher Hooker
"She organized the first convention held in Connecticut to discuss women in government, and formed the Connecticut Woman Suffrage Association. In 1871 she organized the suffragist convention in Washington D.C. For seven years until its passage she submitted to the Connecticut legislature a bill to guarantee women the same property rights as their husbands."

Linda Kearns- A Revolutionary Irish Woman
...her lifelong mission to achieve greater rights for the nursing profession of which she herself was a member, and the wide range of issues in which she became involved. These included conditions in prisons and the lot of prisoners, the plight of refugees, and the rights of women in general and of nurses in particular.
This fascinating biography tells of her capture in November, 1920, and her terrible beating at the hands of the Head Constable, nicknamed ‘Spud’ Murphy. She subsequently spent terms of imprisonment in Derry, Belfast, Armagh, Liverpool and Mountjoy.

The Parliament of Fowles
For out of olde feldes, as men seith,
Cometh al this newe corn fro yeer to yere;
And out of olde bokes, in good feith,
Cometh al this newe science that men lere.
But now to purpos as of this matere —
To rede forth hit gan me so delyte,
That al the day me thoughte but a lyte.
This book of which I make of mencioun,
Entitled was al thus, as I shal telle,
'Tullius of the dreme of Scipioun.';
Chapitres seven hit hadde, of hevene and helle,
And erthe, and soules that therinnr dwelle,
Of whiche, as shortly as I can hit trete,
Of his sentence I wol you seyn the grete.

[The following lines were written on the return of L. Leichhardt, Esq.,
on the 25th March, 1846, from an Expedition through the Unexplored
Regions of Australia between Moreton Bay and Port Essington]—by E.K.S.
Thy footsteps have return'd again, thou wanderer of the wild,
Where Nature from her lonely throne, in giant beauty smiled.
Pilgrim of mighty wastes, untrod by foot before,
Triumphant o'er the wilderness, the weary journey's o'er!
Proud man! In after ages, the story shall be told,
Of that advent'rous traveller, the generous, the bold,
Who scorning hope of selfish gain, disdaining soft repose,
First taught the howling wilderness to blossom like the rose.

Johannes Pääsuke and Estonian Film
Johannes Pääsuke (1892-1918) who also was the author of the first Estonian feature film “Bear-Hunt in Pärnu District” (1914) and established the first estonian film studio “Estonia-Film” at Tartu in 1913.
[The images are so heavily watermarked they're like looking back through the century itself. Like he's sent them through the fires of two world wars and the noise and static of all that hectic inventing and mad hammering industry. It appeals to me that way, it's more accurate, though the nostalgia's gone, and the romance of it is flattened. You don't get the psychic hit of Estonian film pioneering, of this kid walking into the light, with all that hope and optimism of being 21 and having founded the first Estonian film studio. It's humbling, appropriate in a way. A reminder. It's not a show.
But it's still theft. The only people that have a right to proprietary disfigurement are the artists. Merchants have so blurred the distinction between artists as makers and owners, and simple ownership itself, that we have these ponderous absurd debates between champions of human endeavor and people who own art that they couldn't make with their small pinched souls if their lives depended on it. Music is not entertainment. That's a merchant's category, the naming itself is theft. It's as though anything not strictly necessary to maintain the body as an organism is extra, unnecessary.
Music is an essential human activity, as necessary to human survival as shitting and sleeping and fucking. As necessary as laughter.
Music was stolen from the people and sold back to them by predators whose only song is the clink and whisper of money changing hands.
Watermarking is theft, of something that has nothing to do with finance, a theft of the sacred. That's what open source is about. It's not childish idealism, it's human values going up against Leviathan, Moloch. It's mammals versus the machine. Watermarking is theft.]
Man with Two Cameras
"On 27 April 1912 he filmed, with a camera he made himself, the flight demonstration of the Russian aviator Sergei Utotchkin in Tartu."
