„I think that if there is a scheme worthy of our kind it is that of human transformations causing the human being to advance toward unknown zones.“

—  Honoré de Balzac French writer 1799 - 1850
Context: You know what my religion is. I am not orthodox, and I do not believe in the Roman Church. I think that if there is a scheme worthy of our kind it is that of human transformations causing the human being to advance toward unknown zones. That is the law of creations inferior to ourselves; it ought to be the law of superior creations. Swedenborgianism, which is only a repetition in the Christian sense of ancient ideas, is my religion, with the addition which I wish to make to it of the incomprehensibility of God. Letter to Evelina de Hanska (31 May 1837), translated by Katharine Prescott Wormeley.
