Who Said That?

"The relationship between God and the soul is original for every man.  His religion must be his own.  No man or men can tell me what I must think of him.  If I am pure of heart, I see him and know him--and creeds are but fictions that have nothing to do with the truth."

"If I am pure of heart..." You are not pure of heart. No one but God is.
