Human Nobility

“God has created man lofty and noble, made him a dominant factor in creation. He has specialized man with supreme bestowals, conferred upon him mind, perception, memory, abstraction and the powers of the senses. These gifts of God to man were intended to make him the manifestation of divine virtues, a radiant light in the world of creation, a source of life and the agency of constructiveness in the infinite fields of existence.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá from a talk given at Leland Stanford Junior University

“O Son of Spirit!  Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself. Rise then unto that for which thou wast created.”
Bahá’u’lláh, Arabic Hidden Words 22
