How and What
Man revolted against God, and in punishment for this sin God cursed the earth and pronounced upon man this terrible sentence: 'In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread' (Gen. 3:19). And since then humanity advances, dragging in its exile the long chain of its miseries, and bearing on its brow the mark of anathema and decadence.
