307 notes

We cannot reflect on the morality of mankind without contemplating with pleasure the picture of the simplicity which prevailed in the earliest times. This image may be justly compared to a beautiful coast, adorned only by the hands of nature; towards which our eyes are constantly turned, and which we see receding with regret.

—Jean-Jacques Rousseau, A Discourse on the Moral Effects of the Arts and Sciences
