The wisdom of Clara Barton

“It irritates me to be told how things have always been done.
       I defy the tyranny of precedent.”

A leader in nursing Civil War soldiers, first president of the American Red Cross

This is a bold way to say “think outside the box.” I like it.

Barton was a do-gooder in every praiseworthy sense of the word, and she was a leader and innovator as well.

In many ways, she succeeded in going where no man had gone before.
