The Truth is easy to understand although the outward forms in which it is expressed bewilder the intelligence. As men grow they see the futility of man-made forms and despise them. Therefore many leave the churches, because the latter often emphasize the external only.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in London, p. 57)
We were dismayed by his [Mírzá Yahyá ] deceitfulness—nay, bewildered were all things visible and invisible.
(Bahá’u’lláh, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 16)
