Song of Myself
The truth of a theory about man is either creative or irrelevant, but never merely descriptive. A theory about the stars never becomes a part of the being of the stars. A theory about man enters his consciousness, determines his self-understanding, and modifies his very existence. The image of a man affects the nature of man…. We become what we think of ourselves.
- Abraham Heschel
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.
- Aldous Huxley
