WOW, how true that is, in so many applications.

A great Man... At this rate we will most definitely be the cause of our own demise.

Yes, our technical, scientific and pragmatic knowledge overshadows our moral and spiritual evolution. But that second path is one that the individual must embark upon alone and pray that at some point the collective force of that inner power will reach critical mass and true change will occur in the culture of the mind and spirit of society.

An unusually good quotation. And I agree with Robert. He was a great man. How much our country needs such a man now.

That has been true since a Cain picked up a rock and killed Abel. That has always been the nature of man, so we'd better get used to it.
