Side 436 - How to live? — that is the essential question for us. Not how to live in the mere material sense only, but in the widest sense. The general problem which comprehends every special problem is — the right ruling of conduct in all directions under all circumstances. In what way to treat the body; in what way to treat the mind; in what way to manage our affairs; in what way to bring up a family; in what way to behave as a citizen; in what way to utilize all those sources of happiness which nature...
Side 449 - Public health has been defined as the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting physical and mental efficiency through organized community effort.

This may be further interpreted to mean that "one person out of 22 becomes a patient in a hospital for mental disease during the lifetime of a generation.
Side 440 - ... elections, courts, and legislatures are the clumsiest of recording instruments. They can measure only undigested lumps of opinion; they cannot dissect and analyze and so come at the truth.
