Voltairine de Cleyre in Philadelphia, 1901 (age 35)

“[…] for whatever was without, within my own Will was supreme. It has moved steadily in one direction, the knowledge and the assertion of its own liberty, with the responsibility falling thereon. This, I am sure, is the ultimate reason for my acceptance of Anarchism.”

(The Making of an Anarchist)

Voltairine de Cleyre, American anarcha-feminist (1866-1912)
