To whatever heights the mind of the most exalted of men may soar,

however great the depths which the detached and understanding heart can penetrate,

such mind and heart can never transcend that which is the creature of their own conceptions

and the product of their own thoughts…

but a reflection of that which hath been created within themselves,

through the revelation of the Lord, their God.


(Bahá’u’lláh:  Gleanings, CXLVIII)
