Quotation by William James:
Even the least religious men must have felt with Walt Whitman, when loafing on the grass on some transparent summer morning, that, "swiftly arose and spread round him the peace and knowledge that pass all the argument of the earth." At such moments of energetic living we feel as if there were something diseased and contemptible, yea vile, in theoretic grubbing and brooding. In the eye of healthy sense the philosopher is at best a learned fool.
