  When I read the passage below about a man with a curious mind, I was reminded of the scripture in the Bible that says, "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Cor. 4:18

  "The pure faint lines of the open fields, that he saw from his window on the far horizon, rising so peacefully with the hedgerow elms, what did they stand for?

He determined at all events, he would go about the world as a patient learner, grasping at any hint that was offered him, whether it came by the waving of grasses on the waste, by the droop of flower-laden boughs over a wall, from the strange horned insect that crawled in the dust of the highway, or from the soft gaze of loving eyes, flashing a message into the depths of his soul." Arthur C. Benson
