Mind-Heart. Treasures of Learning and Spiritual Wisdom


The mind is the treasure-house of learning but the heart is the treasure-house of spiritual wisdom.

The so-called conflict between religion and science arises only when there is no appreciation of the relative importance of these two types of knowledge.

It is futile to try to glean knowledge of true values by exercise of the mind alone.

Only when the mind accepts its ends and values from the deepest promptings of the heart does it contribute to the life of the spirit.
