Harold J. Morowitz

“…I climb the Acropolis and look out over the modern city of Athens. In my mind’s eye I try to sense the scene as it must have been in the days of Pericles, but something obtrudes that fantasy”

“Hovering over the city is a dark cloud of pollutants so obscenely dirty that it blots out all visions in a reeking miasma of filth. I have seen that cloud floating over many great cities. Yet viewed from the Pathenon, it takes on a new significance, for in looking back at the past, we are tempted to look toward the future”
