Pagina 413 - ... it was necessary, if a universal catastrophe was to be avoided, that a limit should be set to the sweep of destructive war and that some part of the great family of nations should keep the processes of peace alive, if only to prevent collective economic ruin and the breakdown throughout the world of the industries by which its populations are fed and sustained.
Pagina 727 - This way have men come out of brutishness To spell the letters of the sky and read A reflex upon earth else meaningless.
