    Hygiene is the corruption of medicine by morality. It is impossible to find a hygienest who does not debase his theory of the healthful with a theory of the virtuous.... The true aim of medicine is not to make men virtuous; it is to safeguard and rescue them from the consequences of their vices.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    All sin tends to be addictive, and the terminal point of addiction is what is called damnation.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    Just as the individual is not alone in the group, nor any one in society alone among the others, so man is not alone in the universe.
    Claude Lévi-Strauss (b. 1908)

    Hugh Masakela (b. 1939)
