“When humanity wilfully ignores the Universal laws which govern its destiny, Nature has devious ways of pressing home its lessons. Civilisation after civilisation has been built up by human courage destroyed by human ignorance. We stand again on the threshold of a great decision. Once more the workings of time have revealed the weaknesses of our social structure. Once more we have come to a day of reckoning.
If we make the mistakes of old, we will be rewarded by the old pain. But if we make the new effort, we can set up imperishable footings and bestow as a heritage the beginnings of a better way of life. According to our choice the results will be inevitable, for Nature will never change her ways. Let us consider her ways and be wise.”
