People usually think that progress consists in the increase of knowledge, in the improvement of life, but that isn’t so. Progress consists only in the greater clarification of answers to the basic questions of life. The truth is always accessible to a man because a man’s soul is a divine spark, the truth itself. It’s only a matter of removing from this divine spark (the truth) and everything that obscures it… The truth is obtained like gold, not by letting it grow bigger, but by washing off from it everything that isn’t gold. ~ Leo Tolstoy (Photo by Fred Meylan)
