The test of a civilization is in the way that it cares for its helpless members.

The truth is always exciting.  Speak it, then.  Life is dull without it.

American writer and novelist, Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973), spent much of her early life in China as a missionary.  She was widely heralded for her book, THE GOOD EARTH, which was published in 1931.  She garnered the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 and later the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1938.
