    I could not undertake to form a nucleus of an institution for the development of infant minds, where none already existed. It would be too cruel.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The problems of the world, AIDS, cancer, nuclear war, pollution, are, finally, no more solvable than the problem of a tree which has borne fruit: the apples are overripe and they are falling—what can be done?... Nothing can be done, and nothing needs to be done. Something is being done—the organism is preparing to rest.
    —David Mamet (b. 1947)
