"all which we see or hear depends for all its meaning on the soul of the world that no man sees or hears. Let this book be taken as a short and simple lesson-book in hidden meanings [ . . .] Then she [Life] bade us close the book with the touch of pain and healing sent to quicken into life, and again Imagination sent us, among the scenes of daily life to look for the beautiful kingdom which endures: And we must say it in what form we may, so that we catch the meaning of the simple word, so early and so often said, from which our stubborn sense rebels, 'the prison is the world of sight.'" - from the author's Preface.
