A Quote by Pearl S. Buck on angels, earth, faith, heaven, life, needs, wonder, and worth

I feel no need for any other faith than my faith in human beings. Like Confucius of old, I am so absorbed in the wonder of earth and the life upon it that I cannot think of heaven and the angels. I have enough for this life. If there is no other life, then this one has been enough to make it worth being born, myself a human being.

A Quote by Pearl S. Buck on heart, mind, separation, unity, and women

A woman's mind is not an instrument apart from her other being. She does not separate herself as man does, now flesh, now mind, now heart. She is there as one, a unity complete and unified.
