"Birth and infancy is but one stage in the course of life. It is no more important than are the other phases of being and existence.
For a full and complete life, three other stages, youth, adulthood, and old age must be traversed. During his progression from one phase to the next a man and woman [sic] must seek wisdom and self fulfillment so that in the later stages of life, he will have something to offer his fellow man and to his community."
