For materialism is too wildly imaginative at the start: like a runner who at the outset overstrains his heart and thereafter runs no more, the follower of this creed, by his postulate of a blind impersonal Law, exhausts his power of speed and plods henceforth eyes downward over flattest plains of dulness.

If India is to be held for the good of India, throw open India to the civilized nations, that they help us in a task that overstrains us.
