For the full manifestation of the Divine my soul came down on the earth. Many a time I called him names. But I was excepted from punishment. To him I said, “O quoif of muffs, your ignorance is vaster than the cosmos itself. Dream is dream. Reality is reality. They are as different as black and white. To us your dream is a quiz. To you our thought is a riddle. Your present strength is incapacity. Your dream is capacity. My strength is sincerity. It never exceeds practicability. Don’t be a rogue. Be sincerity. When the role of sincerity is over, be patience. Wait for the divine Hour. Alas, your impatience never allows me to see the face of satisfaction.”
