Excerpt from Heaven and Hell: What They Are and Where They Are
It may be asked, if these things are so, why don't we know more about them: l Well, it needs intelligence, and intelligence rightly used, to know anything. Why don't we know enough to keep our livers and stomachs in order? Why is it that the whole human race has not yet develop ed enough intelligence to prevent the bellyache? Simply because we don't use what little intelligence we have in the right way. The combined intelligence of a mother and father will not enable their baby to walk. It is the same with all the functions of life, spiritual as well as physical. Because Jesus, or St. Paul, or Shakespeare knew, or said, or did certain things is of not the slightest consequence to us - we must know them and do them before they are of any value to us.
