A Quote by Herbert Sebastian Agar on civilization, cleverness, faith, hope, and promises

Every civilization rests on a set of promises. . . . If the promises are broken too often, the civilization dies, no matter how rich it may be, or how mechanically clever. Hope and faith depend on the promises; if hope and faith go, everything goes.
