"On the basis of the experience which we learned in this century [the nineteenth]: [humanity ought to] think more, make more effort, and perhaps the next century will be happier, more peaceful, more friendly. This is my firm belief."
-- Tenzin Gyatso
"Humanity has been taking ten steps forward and nine steps backward ever since we stood upright. There was no way for a lemur, who would eventually evolve into to space-exploring man by the grace of God or luck, to visualize that future. "
