The child is the saviour of the race. What we do for the child, for his protection, for his education, for his training for the duties of manhood, for securing the rights and prolonging the period of childhood, is the measure of What we shall accomplish for the race that is to be. The ancient Hebrew prophet drew a picture of the golden age of the world, that with the Hebrew and the Christian is still in the future, a picture that has never been surpassed in literature. And the central figure on the canvas is that of the little child. The sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp. And when the wolf Shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the lion Shall eat straw like the ox, the cow and the bear shall feed — a little child shall lead them. And so it must be with this civilization of ours, if it is to endure.
