Excerpt from Some Aspects of Efficiency
Aspiration sinks to brutal appetite, nobility to knavery and fame to infamy. The pomp and glitter of war sink into ugly contention while the peaceful pursuits assume a new attraction and importance. The contributions made by the Hebrew ... race to religion and morality, by the Greeks to architecture, sculpture and the drama, and by the Roman people in the construction of aqueducts, roads and the establishment of law and government, become more impressive and exalted.
