Efforts - to make in order to develop oneself harmoniously

Because there are so many machines, instruments and products that do everything for human beings and make their lives effortless, our contemporaries are sinking deeper and deeper into laziness, both physical and mental. How much activity, how many exercises of endurance or will power have they given up since the invention of cars, elevators, washing machines, calculators, computers – and medicines! Of course, I approve of all this progress, but only on one condition; that human beings do not forget the importance of effort. If they are to develop correctly, they must not cease certain physical activities, and especially mental and psychic activities. No matter what domain, we can never develop ourselves harmoniously if we surrender to inertia and laziness.
