I believe in the mind of man which looks at a high mountain and scales up to it’s summit;
Or which gazes at the stars and dreams how to build a space ship which will zoom past them to the moon;
I believe in the mind of man which can see the invisible-which discovered and split the atom;
Or takes a pant brush and turns a blank ceiling in a Roman Chapel into a vision of God and Heaven for all to see;
I believe in the mind of man as an instrument of choice as well as knowledge;
It defines me, it challenges me, and most of all, it makes me free.
