Nathan Bedford Forrest
As the heat of the coal differs from the coal itself, so do memory, perception, judgment, emotion, and will, differ from the brain which is the instrument of thought.
All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth.
