Ramakrishna Paramahamsa quotes – the Elephant, the Blind Men and God

Some blind men happened to come across an elephant. Someone told them what it was and asked them to describe it as it seemed to them. The one who touched the leg said that it was like a column. The second one felt its ear and said it is like a winnowing fan. Similarly, those who had touched its trunk or belly gave different opinions. So with God, everyone conceives Him according to his experience.
