“The mystery of the universe and the wonder of the temple of the world are what speak to us through all myths and rites – as well as the great effort of man to bring his individual life into concord with the whole. And the imagery by which this mystery, wonder, and effort have been rendered in the recorded traditions of mankind is so marvelously constant – in spite of all the varieties of local life and culture – that we well may wonder whether it may not simply be coeval with the human mind”.
