"There is a great and crying evil in modern society. It is the want of purpose. It is the narrowness of vision which shuts out the wider vistas of the soul.

What is to keep our heart from freezing in chill despair, to keep our head high and our step firm, if it be not deep-seated, long and carefully matured conviction-that man was sent into the world to perform great and unselfish work, independent of his comfort, independent even of his happiness, and that in its performance alone can he find his true solace, his lasting award?"-Felix Adler
