“There are some truths, deeper and more vital than those of Science, and with respect to which the heart is wiser than the head. It is Poetry or Literature which-reflecting the concentrated result of the universal experience of life-communicates these unchanging and everlasting truths through the imagination, affections and conscience. The Bible itself is only the highest form of Literature."-National Review.
