The test of a civilization
"Our society must make it right and possible for old people not to fear the young or be deserted by them, for the test of a civilization is the way that it cares for its helpless members."
- Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973), American author, 1938 Nobel Prize for Literature

Actually, Pearl Buck specified the old people in this statement. But I also see the very young, the mentally handicapped and those with different forms of disabilities as needing the help and care of the stronger ones in society.
