“Within us we have a hope which always walks in front of our present narrow experience; it is the undying faith in the infinite in us; it will never accept any of our disabilities as a permanent fact; it sets no limit to its own scope; it dares to assert that man has Oneness with God; and its wild dreams become true everyday. We see the truth when we set our minds towards the infinite. The ideal of truth is not in the narrow present, not in our immediate sensations, but in the consciousness of the whole which gives us a taste of what we should have in what we do have. Consciously or unconsciously e have in our life this feeling of Truth which is ever larger than its appearance; for our life is facing the Infinite, and it is in movement. Its aspiration is therefore infinitely more than its achievement, and as it goes on its finds that no realization of truth ever leaves it stranded on the desert of finality, but carries it to a region beyond.”
