History: a Quote from Dorothea Dix

Previous | Thumbnails: Images with Quotes |

The tapestry of history has no point at which you can cut it and leave the design intelligible. –Dorothea Dix  Photo by Kasey Melski Kruser.

Dorothea Dix lived in the 1800s. At a time when women had fewer choices than men did, Dorothea made extraordinary choices for herself. She did not grow up a Unitarian, but she chose to become one as an adult. Another choice she made was to work hard on behalf of other people. Read the rest of this story about Dorothea Dix from the Tapestry of Faith curricula "Windows and Mirrors."
