It is hard to believe, said I, but it is true for all that. In another hundred years it will be as incredible that men talked as we sometimes hear them now. Pectus est quod facit theologum. The heart makes the theologian. Every race, every civilization, either has a new revelation of its own or a new interpretation of an old one.
