" Words are primarily evocative; their descriptive use is conditional on their evocative power. They convey no meaning at all unless they fall into correspondence with some potentiality present or latent in the hearer. Only then do they evoke a response of any kind." " ' It is not for you to know the times and the seasons, which the Father has put in His Own Power.' ( Acts 1: 7)" " ' The operation of his toys on the world stage is precisely what is called God's GAME, or SPORT (lila), and it is by no means accidentally that KARTHA-SARIT-SAGARA describes the working of his puppets as Rajyadhara's 'royal game;' All this is a game that the divinity maketh for Itself;For Its own sake hath It devised created things.' " " 'Standing in front of Durham, Lincoln, or Chartres Cathedral we see that our mediaeval ancestors were able to dominate matter to the point of compelling it to excel itself and to become vibrant with the Spirit.'
