"Contrast alone can enable us to appreciate things at their right value."
- For many years in my own study and research into both
Theosophical history and philosophy [as well as in the
publishing of material (pro, con and neutral) at
Blavatsky Archives ( http://www.blavatskyarchives.com/
)], one of my guiding principles has been the
following as found in the words of H.P. Blavatsky. I
see that Katinka Hesselink has now quoted this excerpt
from HPB on her website at:
HPB's words are:
"In common with most of the periodicals we remind our
readers in every number of The Theosophist that its
'editors disclaim responsibility for opinions
expressed by contributors,' with some of which they
(we) do not agree.
"... Alive to the truism that every path may
eventually lead to the highway as every river to the
ocean, we never reject a contribution simply because
we do not believe in the subject it treats upon, or
disagree with its conclusions. Contrast alone can
enable us to appreciate things at their right value;
and unless a judge compares notes and hears both sides
he can hardly come to a correct decision." C.W. III,
Daniel H. Caldwell
