Quote of the day

We women of New Zealand are organising ourselves in a Volunteer Corps ready to help the sick and wounded. We want no payment for this work – just sufficient money to provide us with the bare necessities of life – food, clothing, shelter. Will you give us these? We give ourselves. – Ettie Rout who was born on this day in 1877.
