The World Hangs in the Balance

“If a person is drawn toward this world and distances himself from his Creator, he will be corrupted and will corrupt the world with him. Yet, if he can rule over himself and he cleaves to his Creator and uses this world solely to aid him in serving his Creator, he will be elevated and the world itself will be uplifted with him.”

Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato, The Path of the Just, Ch. 1
