Quote of the Day

But what do we mean by civilization? We mean, literally, the art of living in cities. But this follows, historically, the rise of agriculture as opposed to the earlier and pastoral type of economy. Without the plow, without the basis of settled cultivation, no city - and therefore no civilization - is even possible.

- C. Northcote Parkinson in East and West
