On nobility of man.
We all want to be considered as a human being and not a monkey.
A man is a living being that thinks.
By this power of thinking, he wonders about all things.
By wondering he learns.
By learning he discovers, he invents, he advances.
The more he advances, he becomes more positive about life.
Monkey cannot become like this, because it has no power to think, to learn and to invent. It simply exists instinctly.
Man may become like monkey if he refuses to use his power of thinking.
In this case, man becomes more miserable than the monkey, because the thinking power in him keeps on functioning negatively or purposelessly!

“This fairest of lands was once a lamp, streaming with the rays of Divine knowledge, of science and art, of nobility and high achievement, of wisdom and valor. Today, because of the idleness and lethargy of her people, their torpor, their undisciplined way of life, their lack of pride, lack of ambition — her bright fortune has been totally eclipsed, her light has turned to darkness. “The seven heavens and the seven earths weep over the mighty when he is brought low.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 9)
