    The purpose of population is not ultimately peopling earth. It is to fill heaven.

    Missionaries, whether of philosophy or religion, rarely make rapid way, unless their preachings fall in with the prepossessions of the multitude of shallow thinkers, or can be made to serve as a stalking-horse for the promotion of the practical aims of the still larger multitude, who do not profess to think much, but are quite certain they want a great deal.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
