Example text

How can it be otherwise in a society in which the teachers have not yet learned that youth raised in ambition, self-assertion and competitive avarice will not grow into charitable adulthood.

One has to be a big man to see God in His glory, a very big man indeed. The Hebrews have no name for Him, the Moslems have a hundred. Both suggest the same thing, that there are concepts as well as emotions that can be communicated only allegorically. God is poor company for those who don’t speak His language. God moves in deepest silence over the sands, the oceans and the sod.
