Respect for the fragility and importance of an individual life is still the mark of an educated man.
The tragedy of life is in what dies inside a man while he lives - the death of genuine feeling, the death of inspired response, the awareness that makes it possible to feel the pain or the glory of other men in yourself.
Man is not imprisoned by habit. Great changes in him can be wrought by crisis - once that crisis can be recognized and understood.
What a man really says when he says that someone else can be persuaded by force, is that he himself is incapable of more rational means of communication.
