Civilization’s Shadow

Is civilization progress? The challenge, I think, is clear; and, as clearly, the final answer will be given not by our amassing of knowledge, or by the discoveries of our science, or by the speed of our aircraft, but by the effect our civilized activities as a whole have upon the quality of our planet’s life—the life of plants and animals as well as that of men.

—Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr.
