"Humanity's most valuable assets have been the non-conformists.
Were it not for the non-conformists, he who refuses to be satisfied
to go along with the continuance of things as they are,
and insists upon attempting to find new ways of bettering things,
the world would have known little progress, indeed."
Gazette and Daily, 2 February 1957

Reader comments about this quote:
The progress the world has known has taken place largely in the area of technology, and very little in the area of spiritual advancement. Many of the technological innovations have resulted in a dubious "progress," accompanied by much contamination, ruination, and degradation.

    Well stated Rosenthal.

    Sadly, just as with technology, so too can social progress be turned to evil... so we have atomic energy... and a bomb. Likewise we have the teachings of Jesus and Mohammad... and the perversions that organized religion makes of those teachings.

    I go along with Reston.

    Jesus was a non-conformist while Christians today resemble more the Pharisees. Most organized religions are in desperate need of new non-conformists.

    I'm checking for a fever, something must be wrong when I agree with David, Anonymous from Reston, and E. Archer all in the same quote.

    Now i do believe in miracles, I agree with Reston. I hope that my agreeing with him doesn't ruin his reputation.
