“Cooperation among all people cannot remain a dream, but something that must become actuality if our civilization is to survive.  We cannot afford to wait long in this changing and changed world.  It is now – not in the next century or even in the next generation, but now – that we and the men and women of all nations, must recognize that no man live unto himself

no country can live unto itself.”
