What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious.

The origin of myths is explained in this way.
The powers, aspirations, and mission of man are such as to raise the study of his origin and nature, inevitably and by the very necessity of the case, from the mere physiological to the psychological stage of scientific operations.

I was often humiliated to see men disputing for a piece of bread, just as animals might have done. My feelings on this subject have very much altered since I have been personally exposed to the tortures of hunger.
