Truth vs. Falsity

“We find two forces in history: one that divides, shatters, and kills, and one that contemplates the unity of the mystery.

“‘The arrow hath not two points.’

“There is the force that falsifies, the force that destroys every clearly delineated symbol, dragging man into a maze of abstract arguments, destroying not one but every religion.

“But the images of the gods, or Byzantine mosaics, move the soul to contemplation and preserve the tradition of the undivided light.”

–A VISITING CARD, 1942
