Truth & Power

After watching a talk by writer and author Elizabeth Gilbert, I just posted on this blog - some words of poet-philosopher Iqbal flashed across my mind. While Iqbal was conversing with someone, he quoted Goethe saying something like this:

"Take refuge in art, there's still truth in it."

But, then, he professed, "I only replace the word 'art' with 'religion', for although art has truth, it hasn't any power." Gilbert's beautiful and reassuring talk reminded me of this.
