Intelligence of the heart

“There was a time when we chose the best of us to guide and represent us, when human qualities were more important than PR. The prophets were humble shepherds, not powerful celebrities, and revelation was once granted to the unlettered one. But today? Today the worst of us are running mosques and community organisations, accepting invitations to strut on television sets, to get ahead with degrees and titles, both real and imagined, whatever it takes. Forgetting, tragically, the intelligence of the heart.”

— paraphrased from a social media post in French
