The Fruit Magazine, Vol. 4 : Scientific Farmer and Canadian Citizen; December, 1911 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Fruit Magazine, Vol. 4: Scientific Farmer and Canadian Citizen; December, 1911 Permit us, then, to criticize certain forms of patriotism and to consider brieﬂy some of the manifestations which indicate the presence of that higher, nobler and inspiring patriotic spirit, which should commend itself to the higher intelligence of our readers. True, national patriotism is not a magnetic pole, or a loadstone to attract stray fragments that may have been thrown off from other systems and thus gather force and magnitude from without until it fills the land. But it is something which should come from within, a germ, a seed of Divine origin, having in it life and the power to germinate just as soon as the conditions are favorable for its growth and expansion. The whole earth is filled with the seeds of rare plants and ﬂowers which may lie dor mant for centuries. But, with the necessary climatic changes, resulting in the proper pro portions of light, heat and moisture, these awake and come forth with a new glory to beauty, and gladden the heart of man and proclaim the Majesty and Power of the Cre ator. Claim the Majesty and Power of the Creator. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
