“And an old priest said, Speak to us of Religion.
Ad he said: Have I spoken this day of aught else? […] Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief from his occupations? […] All your hours are wings that beat through space from self to self. […] he who defines his conduct by ethic imprisons his song-bird in a cage. The freest song comes not through bars and wires. […] Your daily life is your temple and your religion. Whenever you enter into it take with you your all. […] And take with you all men: For in adoration you cannot fly higher than their hopes nor humble yourself lower than their despair. […]”

– Kahil Gibran, ‘The Prophet’
