A diseased social organism...

A diseased social organism sometimes sets up within itself forces which have a tendency to preserve the health of the organism - e.g., the birth of a great personality which may revitalise the dying organism by the revelation of a new ideal.

~ Allama Iqbal (from Stray Reflections)

He is one

He in one
Above all ritual
Above all dogma
Above all custom
And only where
These paths cease
Does true faith begin.
