…The cruelties and obstacles of this
swiftly changing planet will not yield
to obsolete dogmas and outworn slogans.
It cannot be moved by those who
cling to a present which is already
dying, who prefer the illusion of
security to the excitement and
danger which comes with even the
most peaceful progress.
This world demands the qualities
of youth; not a time of life
but a state of mind, a temper of the will,
a quality of the imagination,
a predominance of courage over timidity,
of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.
It is a revolutionary world we live in…
