is a quote that I believe would be germane to any High School
Commencement Address (Germane? Yes. Appreciated? I don't know.)
Progress was understood to be a shining and
unswerving vector, but it turned out to be a complex
twisted curve, which has once more brought us
back to the very same eternal questions which had
loomed in earlier times, except that then facing
these questions was easier for a less distracted,
less disconnected mankind.
- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
If a speaker were to build on these themes, he'd return his audience to
the issues that matter and yet get so easily obscured by daily living.
