And in consequence an inability to stay quiet, an irritable desire to act directly, is one of the most conspicuous failings of mankind.walter bagehot

You will be the land , and the land will be you. If you fail, the land will perish; as you thrive, the land will blossom.
Who sees with equal eye, as God of all, A hero perish, or a sparrow fall, Atoms or systems into ruin hurl'd, And now a bubble burst, and now a world.Alexander Pope
Now, the redemption which we as yet await (continued Imlac), will be that of Kalki, who will come as a Silver Stallion: all evils and every sort of folly will perish at the coming of this Kalki: true righteousness will be restored, and the minds of men will be made as clear as crystal.
