Moods of the Spirit

  “Who will venture to say that the highest insight of the spirit is even half as constant as the highest action of the mind? Ask the saintliest men and women of the world whether their holy watch was continuous, and their faith and love half as reliable as their thought; and they will tell you how long, even when they went up to be with the Savior on the Mount, have been the slumbers of unconsciousness, compared with the priceless moments when they were awake and beheld his glory.” James Martineau, photo by Somnath Chatterjee, "Peace of Soul."
