Quote by Robert Shea
Ultimately we may still ask, why can't humans design a perfect society?
This quote questions the ability of humans to create a flawless society despite their intellect and advancements. It reflects a constant uncertainty about whether humanity possesses the necessary knowledge and understanding to achieve a utopian society. Despite our best efforts, we may still ponder over the limitations and complexities that prevent us from designing a perfect social system. This thought-provoking quote challenges us to consider the inherent flaws in our nature and forces us to grapple with the idea of an imperfect world.
If men lived like men indeed, their houses would be temples -- temples which we should hardly dare to injure, and in which it would make us holy to be permitted to live; and there must be a strange dissolution of natural affection, a strange unthankfulness for all that homes have given and parents taught, a strange consciousness that we have been unfaithful to our fathers honor, or that our own lives are not such as would make our dwellings sacred to our children, when each man would fain build to himself, and build for the little revolution of his own life only.
