Edwin Markham (18521940)
We all are blind until we see That in the human plan Nothing is worth the making if It does not make the man. Why build these cities glorious If man unbuilded goes? In vain we build the world, unless The builder also grows.
EDWIN MARKHAM, Man-Making, Poems of Edwin Markham, p. 6 (1950).
