Quote Me - S4 E9 Leah Jacobson

 After a bit of a hiatus, we are thrilled to be back with Leah Jacobson, founder and CEO of The Guiding Star Project, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and author of Wholistic Feminism: Healing the Identity Crisis Caused by the Women’s Movement. Leah lives in Central Minnesota with her husband, Josh, and seven children. 

 

Her quote comes from Edmund Burke (we think; that attribution is contested), and was painted on the wall of her high school psychology classroom:

 

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” 

 

A couple other quotes we discuss in this episode are from St. Teresa of Calcutta:

 

“I do not pray for success; I ask for faithfulness.”

 

“We have the obligation to speak the truth but we don’t have to convince anyone.” 

 

and St. Augustine:

 

“The truth is like a lion. You don't have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.”


Leah also mentioned the film, The Business of Birth Control.
