“History teaches us about the cyclic rise and fall of civilizations, which, as they become more complex and interconnected, also become more vulnerable to collapse. The earth is littered with the ruins of empires that believed they were eternal.” –Camille Paglia
We can think as highly of ourselves, our technology, and our growth as we want to, but eventually it all becomes a part of mortal ruins that litter history. Only God is eternal. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
