    Using 'path' in this sentence?

    Hi all,
    Could you please tell me if the usage of 'path' and its neighbouring words is correct in the following sentence? Is there any more 'native-like' structure to express the point in this sentence?

    I think using 'world', the tense of the second verb, and the very last combination of words sound so weird!


    '...modernity has always been precious to the world and soon has got
    a path through everyday life...'

    The whole things sounds weird. I don't know what it means. How can "modernity be precious to the world"? I can't begin to make sense of "and soon has got a path through everyday life".

    I can't tell you a more "native" way of saying it because I have no idea what the point being expressed is.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
