Fabulous compilation. Just one point of correction:
“. . . the cure for the ills of Democracy is more Democracy.”

Jane Addams, Democracy and Social Ethics, ed. Anne Firor Scott (Cambridge: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1964)p.11–12. (First published New York: Macmillan, 1902). Note: New York State Governor, Al Smith, is commonly credited with the phrase, “All the ills of democracy can be cured by more democracy,” from a 1933 speech. John Dewey is also frequently credited as having said the same thing 6 years earlier, and it is possible that Smith had read John Dewey’s Public and Its Problems (New York: Holt & Co., 1927) — Both men were contemporaries of Jane Addams who, in fact, published the above-quoted phrase fully 25 years before her fellow sociologist, Dewey.
