Quote of the day

All time-saving devices, amongst which we must count easier means of communication and other conveniences, do not, paradoxically enough, save us time but merely cram our time so full that we have no time for anything. Hence the breathless haste, superficiality, and nervous exhaustion with all the concomitant symptoms--craving for stimulation, impatience, irritability, vacillation, etc. Such a state may lead to all sorts of other things, but never to an increased culture of the mind and heart. CW 18 - par 1343
