"Of what use is your learning and your devotions? Does a donkey become wise through living in a library or a mouse acquire holiness from living in a church?"

"What is it, then, we need?"

"A heart."

"How does one get that?"

The Master would not say. What could he say that they wouldn't turn into a subject to be learned or an object of devotion?
