Human Potential

“The human race had the wisdom to create science and art; why should it not be capable to create a world of justice, brotherliness and peace?  The human race has produced Plato, Homer, Shakespeare, and Hugo, Michelangelo and Beethoven, Pascal and Newton, all these human heroes whose genius is only the contact with the fundamental truths, with the innermost essence of the universe.  Why then should the same race not produce those leaders capable of leading it to those forms of communal life which are closest to the lives and the harmony of the universe?” – Leon Blum
