In his honor, a quote from The Discovery of the Future:

The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is or has been is but the twilight of the dawn.

And from his The Salvaging of Civilization :

A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own.
