Quotes about Alice Foote Macdougall: Commercialism is the blemish on the fair face of American life. Fighting against the terrible conditions of the explorer and pioneer, our forefathers had little time to think of beauty.

Quote about Alice Foote Macdougall: You the rich are no whit more attractive or capable than you who were poor and struggling a few years back.

One has true friends when one is poor and no riches can be greater than that. They are not so obvious when one is rich.

Saying about Alice Foote Macdougall: When one is working out a problem ... life becomes duality. One's ego transacts the ordinary routine of things, as if the mind had an upper and lower story and the regular performance of the day's duties moved and motivated on the upper floor, while down below the all-absorbing problem toils silently, forcefully, toward its solution.
