Quotes from Saint Paulites
“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
“You have to be funny about it and honest about it. You can't leave yourself out of that mix. You have to be honest enough to say, "I'm that messed-up one in the family."”
—Louie Anderson, Saint Paul native and comedian
“Law is order in liberty, and without order, liberty is social chaos.”
—John Ireland, first archbishop of Saint Paul, Minnesota
