The Strength or Weakness of Society

Our Words for the Week come as a warning from Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Russian novelist and Nobel Prize winner.

The strength or weakness of a society depends more on the level of its spiritual life than on its level of industrialization … If a nation’s spiritual energies have been exhausted, it will not be saved from collapse by the most perfect government structure or by any industrial development.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Remember, that of all the elements that comprise a human being, the most important, the most essential, the one that will sustain, transcend, overcome and vanquish obstacles is … SPIRIT — Buddy Ebsen
