The author in his book must be like God in his universe, everywhere present and nowhere visible.
The work of the gods, the universe, is repeated and imitated by men on their own scale.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
Man, unlike anything organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, emerges ahead of his accomplishments.
