"I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today. If any religion had the chance of ruling over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, it could be Islam"
"Love ought to stop on both sides, don’t you think, simultaneously? But it won’t — that’s the devil."

"Those who have not found the heaven below,
will fail of it above."

is part, and awkward expectation
that binds the hands, mistrusts the moment,
and wishes drawn from childhood,
obscure moments and desires
near the river foreshore,
from a weed-clumped silence."
