Truth: Qualification For Learning

Resource Toolbox

Ruskin, in reference to painters, declares, that 'A person false at heart may, when it suits his purposes, seize a stray truth here or there; but the relations of truth, its perfectness, that which makes it wholesome truth, he can never perceive. As wholeness and wholesomeness go together, so also sight with sincerity; it is only the constant desire of; and submissiveness to truth, which can measure its strange angles, and mark its infinite aspects, and fit them and knit them into the strength of sacred invention.'

The like remark, with keener edge, applies to those who would be disciples in Christ's school, or aspire to be teachers in his church.
