Biography Sketches

“To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul…a human being has roots by virtue of his real, active and natural participation in the life of a community which preserves in living shape certain particular treasures of the past and certain particular expectations for the future…the past once destroyed never returns.  The destruction of the past is perhaps the greatest of all crimes.  Today, the preservation of what little of it remains ought to become almost an obsession. We must put an end to the terrible uprootedness…”
