In a country of such recent civilization as ours, whose almost limitless treasures of material wealth invite the risks of capital and the industry of labor, it is but natural that material interests should absorb the attention of the people to a degree elsewhere unknown.

Other quotes by Felix Adler

The platform of an Ethical Society is itself the altar; the address must be the fire that burns thereon.

We measure our enjoyments by the sum expended.

The exercises of our meeting are to be simple and devoid of all ceremonial and formalism.

No one can fail to see that the power of the Church among large numbers in many communities is today diminishing, or has already ceased.

The family is the school of duties - founded on love.
