" If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature can bestow, in some parts a very paradise on earth, I SHOULD POINT TO INDIA ..."

" If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most developed some of it gifts, has most deeply pondered on the GREATEST PROBLEMS OF LIFE and has found solutions of some of them which will deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant, I SHOULD POINT TO INDIA...."

" And if I were to ask myself from what literature we, here in Europe, who have been nurtured most exclusively on the thoughts of the Greeks and Romans and of the Semitic race and the Jewish may draw that corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more comprehensive, more universal, in fact a more truly human life, again, I SHOULD POINT TO INDIA...."

- Professor Max Muller (1823-1900)
