Quarta di copertina

If man is a brute and nothing more the law of the physi cal is as completely adapted to him as to the living creatures beneath him. If death closes the career Of man and beast alike, then it is well for both, if inefficient and weak, if ail; ing and diseased, to go down together in the struggle, in order that the strong and the efficient may have Wider Opportunity to complete their lives. But man is not a brute. He is essentially a spirit. Therefore, the law of his life, the law in obedience to which he attains supremacy, is not summed up in Darwin's famous sentence: The survival of the fit test in the struggle for existence. The rule Darwin de fined from a study of life in the plant and animal kingdoms, is the law of economy, under the sway of which the many are sacrificed for the few. It is the law by which the super fluous and unfit are destroyed that the strong may have room in which to flourish. But human beings do not become strong by driving the weak to the wall they become strong by lifting the weak. They become good by sacrificing for the bad in order that the bad may become good. Human beings do not become wise by destroying the foolish but rather by sharing their wisdom with the foolish so that they may cease to be foolish. Humanlbeings do not become strong by ousting the morally weak, but by lending them their own moral strength that they may become strong. Human beings do not become holy by eliminating the vicious and depraved: they attain sanctity by sacrificing for the erring, by sympa thizing with them, by helping them in order to lift them to a higher moral and Spiritual level.
