Just want to share this quotation:

But civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in 
a number of individuals a new tone of mind independent of the one 
prevalent among the crowd and in opposition to it, a tone of mind 
which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in 
the end determine its character. It is only an ethical movement which 
can rescue us from the slough of barbarism, and the ethical comes 
into existence only in individuals ... That is the condition in which 
we are now, and that is why it is the duty of individuals to rise to 
a higher conception of their capabilities and undertake again the 
function which only the individual can perform, that of producing new 
spiritual ideas. If this does not come about in a multitude of cases 
nothing can save us. - Albert Schweitzer.
