“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Carry Nation (American Activist)
Carrie Nation was a member of the temperance movement—the battles against alcohol in pre-Prohibition America—particularly noted for promoting her viewpoint through vandalism. On many occasions, Nation would enter an alcohol-serving establishment and attack the bar with a hatchet. She has been the topic of numerous books, articles and even a 1966 opera at the University of Kansas.
Nation was a large woman nearly 6 feet tall and weighing 175 pounds ; she described herself as "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like," and claimed a divine ordination to promote temperance by smashing up bars.
