Man as a mine rich in gems . . .

October 2012’s ‘thought for the month’:

“Man is the supreme Talisman. Lack of a proper education hath, however, deprived him of that which he doth inherently possess. Through a word proceeding out of the mouth of God he was called into being; by one word more he was guided to recognize the Source of his education; by yet another word his station and destiny were safeguarded. The Great Being saith: Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom….”From Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, Sec. 122, pp. 259–60) [4]
