“The religions, philosophies, sciences, and arts of mankind are all ensouled organisms. They grow up in the world, like flowers in a field, all nourished by the same light and moisture. It profits nothing to argue as to which of these flowers is the fairest or which is the most likely to survive, nor is it more practical to debate such issues as which shrub was predestined to govern the others. All are channels for the one life, which alone determines the fulfillment of the processes of growth. The separate organisms of learning must finally come together to form one vast organization.”

– Manly P. Hall, America’s Assignment with Destiny
