Happy New Year

Here are some New Year's thoughts from Agnes Deans Cameron, one of British Columbia's famous women.

We are men, now, and women, in a world of work. Let us do that work as well as we can, without stopping to ask if we were once slugs or will one day be angels. And have a kind word and a smile for the next one you meet; he too is fighting a hard fight.

Victoria, January 1, 1903.
Published in The Province, Vancouver, Friday, 2 January, 1903, page 12.

Agnes Deans Cameron (1863-1912) was an educator and a journalist - and an adventurer and an activist. Read about her in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online.
