I have met few men in my life, worth repeating eight times.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902), U.S. suffragist, author, and social reformer. Eighty Years and More (1815-1897), ch. 18 (1898).
Replying to a man at an 1872 constitutional convention in Lincoln, Nebraska. He had said, "My wife has presented me with eight beautiful children; is this not a better life-work than that of exercising the right of suffrage?"
