Sample Book Insights:

#1 Culture is a matter of yea-saying. It begins with wonder, and is sanctioned by an intuitive feeling about the immanent nature of reality. Without the metaphysical dream, it is impossible to think of men living together harmoniously over an extent of time.

#2 The most important goal for one to reach is the imaginative picture of what is otherwise a brute empirical fact, the donnée of the world. The rational faculty will be in service of a vision that can preserve his sentiment from sentimentality. There is no significance to the sound and fury of life unless something is being affirmed.

#3 The dream is dependent on logic, and not the other way around. We must admit this when we realize that logical processes ultimately rest on classification, which is by identification. And identification is intuitive. Without the transcendental truth of mythology and metaphysics, it is impossible to refine our experience.

#4 The man of self-control is the one who can consistently perform the act of abstraction. He is trained to see things under the aspect of eternity because form is the enduring part. The man of culture has a deep respect for forms, and he approaches even those he does not understand with awareness that a deep thought lies behind them.
