Words of Wisdom: The common symbols that unite us all

Prince Amyn Aga Khan speaking at the opening ceremony of the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto in the presence of His Highness the Aga Khan and Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper.The history of the thought and the creations of man can perhaps be said to be a long path from one period of enlightenment to another. I would hope that this Museum will contribute to a new period of enlightenment, helping visitors from around the world to rediscover the common symbols that unite us all across the globe, across all civilisations, across time.
