The Child, The Wise Man, and The Devil by Coulson Kernahan

“They who declared that reason would not allow them to believe that God could once become Incarnate, saw no reason to doubt the manifold Reincarnation of Man. They who complained that they found the straight and level highway of Christianity too difficult a road for them to follow, or that there was no sure foothold therein, were content to lose themselves among the mazes of Superstition, or to flounder and stumble among the stony wastes of Unbelief. And many I saw who wandered backward and forward aimlessly, as if seeking for something which they found not. And ever and anon one would cry out, ‘Lo, I have it!’ and the others would cease their search, and run with gladness to hear him. But so often as one thus called out, so often would they who ran return whence they came, unsatisfied and unfilled, until not a few ceased to give ear at all.”
