Signs of the Times

[Dr. Lang, as quoted in Public Opinion, London, England]

It is not in resolutions and societies and treaties that war is first to be abolished, but in the hidden man of the heart. It is he who must seek peace and ensue it—in his daily attitude towards his neighbor, in his daily thoughts, still more in his daily talk, about his fellow-men of other nations, in his restraint of prejudices about them, in his refusal to think the worst, and his readiness to think the best, of them. And, just because the ultimate conquest of war depends upon the conquest of the spirit, there must be some motive, some power, strong enough, constant enough, to penetrate and possess this inner region. Where is such a motive, such a power, to be found?
