[Asked if American women would ever win full suffrage:] Assuredly. I firmly believed at one time that I should live to see that day. I have never for one moment lost faith. It will come but I shall not see it ... it is inevitable.
Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906), U.S. suffragist. As quoted in Life and Work of Susan B. Anthony, vol. 3, ch. 60, by Ida Husted Harper (1908).
In a 1902 interview. At age 82, Anthony was still active but in poor health; she had worked ceaselessly for woman suffrage for 50 years. Her prediction was correct, of course. American women gained the vote in 1920, a century after her birth and fourteen years after her death.
