"If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity
to shape our lives,
to seek the kinds of growth
that we find individually fulfilling,

then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham,
in which our selves are determined by the will of others,
in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us"
