I am by all my nature of mind skeptical, by all my nature of body exceedingly sensual. So sensual that the virtues restrictive of sense are but phrases to me. But I accept these phrases as true and act upon them as well as a struggling man can. And as to the doubt of the soul, I discover it to be false: a mood: not a conclusion. My conclusion—and that of all men who have ever once seen it—is the Faith. Corporate, organised, a personality, teaching. A thing, not a theory. It.
