Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has
goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but
we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us
in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and
unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we
need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.
