Teilhard de Chardin

Even in this century, men are still living as chance circumstances decide for them, with no aim but their daily bread of a quiet old age. You can count the few who fall under these spell of a task that far exceeds the dimensions of their individual lives. . . . After having for so long done no more than allow itself to live, Mankind will one day understand that the time has come to undertake its own development and to mark its own road.

~ Teilhard de Chardin, from “The Great Monad”
