Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017

From the beginning of recorded history, man has had his difficulties to overcome. In fact, history is a recording of these ordeals.

We, of this highly mechanized age, have turned our problems over to bigger and bigger machines to do our work for us. We have raised economic efficiencies to the point where we can provide all our needs and luxuries by easy work in just a few days a week. We are going soft.

No wonder, then, that when a problem confronts us, we try to escape it by hiding in a bottle. We try to escape the seriousness of living, forgetting that when life ceases to be serious, it will become a joke – at our expense.
