the other human being who i am comtemplating, i shall always see and know something that he, from his place outside and over against me, cannot see himself: parts of his body that are inaccessible to his own gaze (his head, his face, his expression), the world behind his back… as we gaze at each other, two different worlds are reflected in the pupils of our eyes

the intuition of higher values fertilizes our contact with the lesser ones, and love for what is near and small makes the sublime real and effective within our hearts

the ideal is fertile—that is, morally fertile—only when it is all-embracing. it is a work of love and not of exclusion.
