The problems of aging present an opportunity to rethink our social and personal lives in order to ensure the dignity and welfare of each individual.
– Daisaku Ikeda
In Henry Adams, I discovered not only the prototype of the modern thinker but also someone who is more interesting: a viper-toothed, puling, supercilious crank, thwarted in ambition, aging gracelessly, mad at the cosmos, and ashamed of his own jejune ideals. He is nevertheless very dear to me.
