That Which the Thinker (Prophet, Poet etc) Conceives, That Becomes the Life of a Nation, and Is Worked Out in Social Organisation

“So our Ideal of Government shall work into the life of the nations wherein we live; for it is thought that builds nations as well as individuals; that which the thinker conceives, that which the prophet declares, that which the poet sings, that becomes the life of a nation, and is worked out in social organisation.” (Annie Besant. The Ideals of Theosophy; p. 33; emphasis added)
