“Social Purity Shall Grandly Triumph” / Memorable Fancies #2616

An excerpt from the book Social Abominations, or The Follies of Modern Society Portrayed by Many Eminent Writers. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 1895:

“Whenever the young women of this nation, or any other, able to earn their own living, ready for an independent life, yet sweetly drawn by the elegant persuasions of their hearts to the old and sacred pathways of love, marriage and home – whenever they can say to the young men: “You must choose between tobacco and me.” “You must choose between strong drink and me.” “You must choose between a pack of cards and me, between an immoral life and me,” then, and not till then, these sensual indulgencies will be relinquished by young men; then, and not till then, the cause of social purity shall grandly triumph.”
