PRINCIPAL OF THE PEOPLE'S COLLEGE, NOTTIN

(IN FOUR SECTIONS.)

“There are some truths, deeper and more vital than those of Science, and with respect
to which the heart is wiser than the head. It is Poetry or Literature which-reflecting the
concentrated result of the universal experience of life-communicates these unchanging
and everlasting truths through the imagination, affections and conscience. The Bible
itself is only the highest form of Literature.”-National Review.
