Heart and Soul…

*

Pious people generally are unaware

how much latitude is necessary for

 a scholar to take the religious problem seriously.

It is only by viewing the question historically

that it seems to make any sense at all.

But even then our scholar stands no nearer piety.

Every age possesses its signature niavety

of which all other ages are envious.

How charming the notion that a pious man

be surpassed by the scholar,

by that presumptious half-man,

inventor and High-Priest of ‘modern ideas’!
