"Margaret Mead was both a student of civilization and an exemplar of it. To a public of millions, she brought the central insight of cultural anthropology: that varying cultural patterns express an underlying human unity.

We want the spirit of America to be efficient; we want American character to be efficient; we want American character to display itself in what I may, perhaps, be allowed to call spiritual efficiency clear, disinterested thinking and fearless action along the right lines of thought.

It is something only if it consists of all of us; and it can consist of all of us only as our spirits are banded together in a common enterprise.Speech on Military Preparedness, Pittsburgh (29 January 1916)

Newbolt, The Island Race, Clifton Chapel.
