Woman’s Role in the New World Order

“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman.
If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man.
If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior.
Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage?
Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman.
Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?”

– Mahatma Gandhi

In the Beginning Was the Word, and the Word Was Money

“As humanity perfects itself, man becomes degraded.
When everything is reduced to the mere counter-balancing of economic interests, what room will there be for virtue?
When Nature has been so subjugated that she has lost all her original forms, where will that leave the plastic arts?
And so on. In the meantime, things are going to get very murky.”
– Gustave Flaubert

The Revolution of Industry

“We are being made aware that the organization of society on the principle of private profit, as well as public destruction, is leading both to the deformation of humanity by unregulated industrialism, and to the exhaustion of natural resources, and that a good deal of our material progress is a progress for which succeeding generations may have to pay dearly.” – T.S. Eliot
