"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"It seems to me that we are now compelled to recognize that we have no place to go but where we’ve been. We’ve got to go look at what we’ve done, which is oftentimes pretty awful, and see if we can’t make of this place a civilized home. We’ve in a sense built a house, but we haven’t made it a home."
