"The cement of a higher humanity"

The strength of a family, nation, civilization, depends on the "cement" of integrity.

From the June 1999 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Would you trust a brick building put together with mush as the mortar? Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? No matter how solid the bricks, the successful binding together of those individual bricks to produce a strong structure can only be in proportion to the integrity of the mortar. And if every single brick is not produced with the same degree of integrity, the entire building could be weakened.
