    When a person identifies himself with a group his critical faculties are diminished and his passions enhanced by a kind of emotive resonance.

    The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. So to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.
