Heart answers to heart

“How it strengthens our love for our fellow-man to know that in every land and in every clime, minds and hearts are so much alike that they respond in unison to the master touch of genius! How it thrills us in reading, to find our own thoughts suddenly brought before us by some great writer clothed in words as we could never utter! But we know that we are akin to him, for does not heart answer to heart, and mind to mind, as we see before us a transcript of our own thoughts?—thoughts which may have been so vague and fleeting as to elude farther search for them--- but here they are; we have found them at last, clothed in enduring beauty, and made palpable by the genius of another.” Well Springs of Truth 1883
