the most beautiful thing

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science.
He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead - - - his eyes are closed.
The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion.
 
 
To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists,
manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty,
which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms.
 This knowledge,
 This feeling,
 is at the center of true religiousness.
 In this sense, and in this sense only
I belong to the rank of devoutly religious men.
