If we will only keep this large point of view constantly in mind, we shall be able to maintain a sane point of view, we shall not become obsessed with an undue sense of our importance, we shall not attempt to do alone what only can be accomplished by the active and whole-hearted co-operation of all the constructive forces of the community. The magnitude and the significance of...
Page 97 - Why, no one is sane, straight along, year in and year out, and we all know it.
