"The merely worldly man, interred amid mean cares, doubts the majestic truths of religion, simply from their sublimity and vastness, which render them incommensurable with his poor fraction of a mind: let him go and do a few noble deeds, and elevate the proportions of his nature, and it is wonderful what might things seem to become possible: Deity is near and even present at once, and immortality not improbable." 
James Martineau.
