A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, spirit, enlightenment, modernism, and wisdom

Instant enlightenment.  A quintessential modernism, culture and religion accommodated to the age of fast food and bumper stickers.  But psyche and spirit are not so exempt from the natural domain that they can simply produce self-change instantaneously, on demand.  Wisdom precipitates through a notoriously slow apparatus of retorts and flasks, and it has to find receptive ground only in a properly seasoned mind.
