In Saint Paul, our sisters and brothers invest sweat and tears in freedoms, artistic and otherwise. Sometimes we offer a welcome hat, and other times we try our best to offer refuge against the protestations of neighbors who have forgotten how and why their great grandparents came here.
Quotes from Saint Paulites
“Because of our social circumstances, male and female are really two cultures and their life experiences are utterly different.”
—Kate Millett, Saint Paul native and writer
“I do hope that in my blundering way through life I may in a small measure defend the dignity of common men and prove of some sustaining power to the suffering souls I meet... I have small faith in any man’s religion if he feels above those who are unfortunate.”
—L. C. Larry Ho Hodgson, Saint Paul mayor and poet
“The fact that I am a professional musician has helped me greatly in becoming a writer... In both disciplines, inexplicable and magical moments occur, beyond technique or any amount of preparation or study.”
