The Return of Arnold Toynbee | Just doing my part + a sad book story

When we are investigating the relations between the facts of History, we are trying to see God through History with our intellects. The sorting out of facts is essentially an intellectual activity. The Intellect, however, is only one faculty of the Soul. When we think about some­thing, we are apt also to have feelings about it, and our impulse to express our feelings is still stronger than our impulse to express our thoughts. –Arnold Toynbee, A Study of History
