Openings

Why with all our labor-saving devices and fast transport, are we so short of time? Is it because we are greedy of experience for its own sake?--to see more, go farther, earn more, learn more, than is feasible in one short lifetime? The human soul needs time, needs to take time, unless experience is to become mere accumulation, bearing bad fruit, like any other kind of ambition.

Mildred Binns Young, 1966
