From Isis Unveiled:

Our Ego, that which lives and thinks and feels
independently of us in our mortal casket, does more than
believe. It knows that there exists a God in nature, for the
sole and invincible Artificer of all lives in us as we live in
Him. No dogmatic faith or exact science is able to uproot
that intuitional feeling inherent in man, when he has once
fully realized it in himself. Difficult, nay, impossible, as it
seems to science to find out the invisible, universal motor
of all -- Life, to explain its nature, or even to suggest a
reasonable hypothesis for the same, the mystery is but half
a mystery, not merely for the great adepts and seers, but
even for the true and firm believers in a spiritual world. To
the simple believer, there remains divine faith. The latter is
firmly rooted in his inner senses; in his unerring intuition,
with which cold reason has naught to do, he feels it cannot
play him false. Let human-born, erroneous dogmas, and
theological sophistry contradict each other; let one crowd
off the other, and the subtile casuistry of one creed fell to
the ground the crafty reasoning of another; truth remains
one, and there is not a religion, whether Christian or
heathen, that is not firmly built upon the rock of ages --
God and immortal spirit.
