No one has ever laughed at a pun who did not see in the one word a twofold meaning. To materialists this world is opaque, like a curtain; nothing can be seen through it. A mountain is just a mountain, sunset just a sunset. But to poets, artists, and saints, the world is transparent like a window pane. It tells of something beyond. For example, a mountain tells of the power of God, the sunset of his beauty, and the snowflake of his purity.
Fulton Sheen
