Spirit is like a soaring eagle, where the soul is like a butterfly hovering close to the earth and to humanity. But as a culture, we are too concerned with the spirit and have forgotten our soul. We try so hard to hard to soar into the clouds, we've lost the earthly, humble soul.
You discover your soul, always, in another, and in light of some higher value. Thomas Aquinas thought we enter this life with a soul that is like a blank sheet. The poem of our lives is written on that sheet.
The man who has no inner life is a slave to his surroundings. - Amiel, henri-Frederic
