Do not go forward looking backward

  • The Search for new ways is the most imperative problem.
  • Due to the unusualness of conditions of the future, it will be impossible to proceed by the old ways.
  • All new ones must remember this. It is the worst thing when men do not know how to escape from the old rut. It is dreadful when people approach new conditions with their old habits.
  • Just as it is impossible to open a present-day lock with a medieval key, likewise it is impossible for men with old habits to unlock the door to the future.
  • Today it did not succeed in order that tomorrow it may blossom more beautifully.
From the book 'Brotherhood', #423
