A Quote by Phillips Brooks on heaven, strength, and struggle

A Quote by Phillips Brooks on death and people

The Bible is like a telescope. If a man looks through his telescope, then he sees worlds beyond; but if he looks at his telescope, then he does not see anything but that. The Bible is a thing to be looked through, to see that which is beyond; but most people only look at it; and so they see only the dead letter.
