1917 - ABDUL BAHA ANSWERS QUESTIONS ASKED BY THEOLOGIANS OF PARIS
Pasteur Monnier's Theological Seminary, Paris (The audience was composed of professors, clergy and theological students)
ABDUL BAHA: "One endowed with the gift of hearing gets the mysteries of God from all things and all creation conveys to him the divine message."
(Abdu'l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 146)
 1933 - Environmental Stewardship
We cannot segregate the human heart from the environment outside us and say that once one of these is reformed everything will be improved. Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions.[31]

[31: Shoghi Effendi, through his Secretary, from a letter dated 17 February 1933 to an individual believer] (Baha'i International Community, 1998 Feb 18, Valuing Spirituality in Development)
