PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE ASLEEP
As we often say, "People have a right to be asleep." There is
a time for sleeping which is a major part of our millions of lives.
The time for waking only comes when we have seen it all. So
we must not be impatient with people who seem to us very,
very worldly and interested in the world scene. It is their time
to be doing that. You all did it — maybe are still doing it. No
one should be criticized for that.
