When the human race neglects its weaker members, when the family neglects its weakest one – it’s the first blow in a suicidal movement. I see the neglect in cities around the country, in poor white children in West Virginia and Virginia and Kentucky – in the big cities, too, for that matter.
If a man neglects education, he walks lame to the end of his life.
Whoso neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future.
He who is satisfied has never truly craved, and he who craves for the light of God neglects his ease for ardor.
Whoever neglects the arts when he is young has lost the past and is dead to the future.
