    "No matter how far the material world advances, it cannot
    establish the happiness of mankind. Only when material and
    spiritual civilization are linked and coordinated will
    happiness be assured. Then material civilization will not
    contribute its energies to the forces of evil in destroying
    the oneness of humanity, for in material civilization good
    and evil advance together and maintain the same pace."
