Sons and daughters of the Earth,

steep yourself in the sea of matter,

bathe in its fiery water,

for it is the source of your life and your youthfulness.

You thought you could do without it

as the power of thought had been kindled in you?

You hoped the more you rejected the tangible,

the closer you would be to spirit:

that you would be more divine

if you lived in the world of pure thought,

or at least more angelic if you fled the corporeal?

Well, you were like to have perished of hunger.

You must have oil for your limbs,

blood for your veins,

water for your soul,

the world of reality for your intellect:

do you not see that the very law of your own nature

makes these a necessity for you?

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
