“Today, we have knowledge of many, many things and the relations among human beings have multiplied ad infinitum. But we live in cities that are like deafening factories in awful Babels, with nothing to remind us of our inner world. Our communion with this inner world is not through contemplation but through books. We have passed from intuition into intellectualism.”
“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able
of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need
for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these
three forces are the very nerve of education.”
“Whoever seeks higher knowledge must create it for himself. He must instill it into his soul. It cannot be done by study; it can only be done through life. Whoever, therefore, wishes to become a student of higher knowledge must assiduously cultivate this inner life of devotion. Everywhere in his environment and his experiences he must seek motives of admiration and homage.”
"The meaning of life is to give life meaning."
