What’s A Heaven For?

Robert Browning in my favorite poet and here is my favorite quote from him:

“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp. Or what’s a heaven for?”

If man did not use imagination and inspiration and strive to extend himself beyond the logical and the empirical, we would not grow as a species and an individual in our capacity for intelligence and empathy and self-improvement.
