"Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained. It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism." -- Dorothy Thompson
Dorothy Thompson (9 July 1893, Lancaster, New York — January 30, 1961, Portugal) was an American journalist and radio broadcaster, who was noted by Time magazine in 1939 as one of the two most influential women in America, the other being Eleanor Roosevelt.
She is notable as the first American journalist to be expelled from Nazi Germany (in 1934), one of the few women news commentators on radio during the 1930s, and as the inspiration for Katharine Hepburn's character "Tess Harding" in the film Woman of the Year (1942).
