A Quote by R. Turnbull on age, civilization, conflict, darkness, day, disease, doubt, faith, and intelligence

Doubt is the disease of this inquisitive, restless age. It is the price we pay for our advanced intelligence and civilization-the dim night of our resplendent day. But as the most beautiful light is born of darkness, so the faith that springs from conflict is often the strongest and best.

Thou mayest as well expect to grow stronger by always eating, as wiser by always reading. Too much overcharges Nature, and turns more into disease than nourishment. 'Tis thought and digestion which make books serviceable, and give health and vigor to the mind.

R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 - 1983)
