Excerpt

d out of his full hands a blessing on his
brother that leaves utterly out of sight any gift
that riches can bestow on poverty.

We want a faith, a truth, a grace to help us
_now_, ... and we can have it. One who was man,
yet mightier than man, has walked the vale before
us.

Every attempt to do right has a tendency to
reveal to us more spiritual ways of doing right,
and our need of spiritual helps in doing it.

The thought of life is like that untouched line
we call the "sky," but which, when we try to
reach it, proves to be not one single line, but
an infinite depth ... stored with what strange
uses and benefactions we dare not say.

Some men's faith only makes itself visible; other
men's lightens everything within its reach.

[Illustration: Flowers]

There is positive proof in the single sunbeam of
the existence of the sun.

Strike God's iron on the anvil, see God's goods
across
