On Civilization

“Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.” 
~H.G. Wells, The Outline of History

“Civilization is the limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities.” 
~Mark Twain

And the wind shall say “Here were decent godless people;
Their only monument the asphalt road
And a thousand lost golf balls.”
~T.S. Eliot
