"It has often been said that the poets stand next to the prophets in their ability to build us up, but we also have the philosophers, the statesman, and the orators to help us get exactly the right success treatment. We may search the scriptures in an attempt to find those treasures of truth to give us spiritual satisfaction and moral motivation. And from those other great volumes that have been written by other wise men, we may select those particular combinations of sympathy, instruction, and feeling which will increase our mental health, stimulate our ambition, satisfy our souls, satisfy the hunger of our hearts and put our feet firmly on the road that leads to God." - p.4
