    The second fundamental feature of culture is that all culture has an element of striving.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Physical nature lies at our feet shackled with a hundred chains. What of the control of human nature? Do not point to the triumphs of psychiatry, social services or the war against crime. Domination of human nature can only mean the domination of every man by himself.
    —Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
