A Quote by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler on destruction, force, hope, rules, and world

Fundamentally, the force that rules the world is conduct, whether it be moral or immoral. If it is moral, at least there may be hope for the world. If immoral, there is not only no hope, but no prospect of anything but destruction of all that has been accomplished during the last 5,000 years.

Nicholas Butler (1862 - 1947)
