Para #13515 - Notebooks of Paul Brunton Notebooks of Paul Brunton

To believe that the old past was quite barbaric, that the new present is quite civilized, as do those who pin all their faith to the "progress" brought about by science, shows definite ignorance of the past and lack of insight into the present. Moreover it also shows a dangerous lack of humility, dangerous because the first need of humanity is to be humble, is to confess its failure and admit its weakness.
