Anxiety, the spice of life...
Professor Arnold Toynbee in a lecture at Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia, said that the world had “no moral claim” to enjoy political and economic stability. “Anxiety, insecurity and danger are normal conditions of human life,” he said. “Do not dread or resent the insecurity that has overtaken the middle classes in the United States and other English speaking nations. On the contrary, welcome it as an adventure.”
