A Quote by John W. Scoville on age, conquest, force, labor, nature, progress, society, and words

The progress of the industrial age rests on the greater diversification of labor and the use of more elaborate tools and machinery which have increased productivity-in other words, saved labor. . . . In our attempt to cure the social ills, we should not kill the goose that has laid the golden eggs. If our society is sick, it is for other reasons than the conquest by man of the forces of nature.

John W. Scoville
