The Master welcomed the advances of technology
The Master welcomed the advances of technology,
but was keenly aware of its limitations.
When an industrialist asked him what his occupation was, he replied,
“I’m in the people industry.”
“And what, pray, would that be?” said the industrialist.
“Take yourself,” said the Master.
“Your efforts produce better things; mine, better people.”
To his students he later said,
“The aim of life is the flowering of persons.
Nowadays people seem concerned mostly with the perfection of things.”
