Excerpt from A Short View of Great Questions

HE greatest things in this world are not its rivers, lakes and mountains; not its forests, plains and palaces. None of these can see, feel or love none can think, aspire or dare. Man - who can build palaces, who can conquer the forests and plains, who can read the stars and suns, who can taste of both pain and joy - is the noblest object in this world. The raggedest child in London is greater than St. Paul's; the poorest peasant in France is nobler than the tallest peak of the Alps. Man need not grovel or abase himself. He is older than the city of Rome, older than the Pyramids, older than the Koran or the Bible, older than any book ever written or printed and he will survive them all.

HE man of high and noble character, though he be poor and of humble station, is really rich and great; and he who is possessed of a frivolous, selfish or vicious character, though he have great earthly posses sions, though even he sit upon a throne, is actually a pauper.
