There is one soul

There is one soul.
It is related to the world.
Art is its action thereon.
Science finds its methods.
Literature is its record.
Religion os the emotion of reverence that it inspires.
Ethics is the soul illustrated in human life.
Society is the finding of this sould by individuals in each other.
Trades are the learning of the soul in nature by labor.
Politics is the activity of the soul illustrated in power.
Manners are silent and mediate expressions of the soul.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
