THE CRUCIAL RESOURCE
Of all resources,
the most crucial is Man's spirit
Not dulled, or
lulled, supine, secure, replete,does Man create,
But out of stern
challenge, in sharp excitement, with burning joy.
Man is hunter still,
though his quarry
be a hope, a mystery, a dream.
immortal hungers, what sudden sight of the unknown,
surges that desire?
What flint of fact, what kindling of light of art or far horizon,
What cry, what music, what strange beauty, strikes that resonance?
On these hangs
the future of the world.
