‎"If you would know a mystic, 
do not confine your search to monasteries and temples, 
but look also on the highways and byways, 
in towns, hamlets, 
and in the hustle and bustle of the great cosmopolitan centers of the world. When you find someone who is industrious, 
studious, compassionate, 
loved by friends, and neighbours, 
tolerant in religious views, 
who can point out to you 
the magnificence and efficacy of God in the simplest of things, 
you have found a mystic. 
With these qualities, 
whether one is attired in sacerdotal robe or in the overalls of a mechanic, 
one is none the less a mystic." 
--Ralph M. Lewis
