A description of the experience
Sartor Resartus – Thomas Carlyle
There is but one temple in the world and that temple is the body of man. Nothing is holier than this high form. Bending before men is a reverence done to this revelation in the flesh. We touch heaven, when we lay our hands on a human body.
