"The means by which we live
have outdistanced
the ends for which we live.
Our scientific power has outrun
our spiritual power.
We have guided missiles
and misguided men."
by:
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(1929-1968), US civil rights leader

    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.
     -- EGL, LA

    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.
