civilization

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on civilization, correction, evil, nations, and sympathy

To correct the evils, great and small, which spring from want of sympathy and from positive enmity among strangers, as nations or as individuals, is one of the highest functions of civilization.

A Quote by Abraham Flexner on borrowing, choice, civilization, education, nations, and war

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education. Probably, no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both.
