“...then, I implore you, take some interest in those sacred dwellings meaningly described as laboratories. Ask that they may be multiplied and completed. They are the temples of the future, of riches and of comfort. There humanity grows greater, better, stronger; there she can learn to read the works of nature, works of progress and universal harmony, while humanity’s won works of progress and universal harmony, while humanity's own works are too often those of barbarism, of fanaticism and of destruction.
