Description

Excerpt from Helps for Daily Living Not a great while ago, I was engaged in conversation with a finely-cultured and earnest-hearted gentleman, who had been trained in the old religious faith, and who, I think, is still a member of the Orthodox Church. I found, how ever, that, in spite of these facts, he was sharing in the dis content, the bewilderment, the questionings, that are touch ing so many hearts and so many minds at the present time. He had been suddenly smitten with a great affiiction, one that had been great enough and had come near enough to his own life to shock his settled belief, and make him ready to ask the question, What does life mean? What is it for, he said, what is the outcome of it? Why are we subjected to these tremendous trials? Are they worth while? Is there any definite aim and meaning in life? So people in all departments of life, in all branches of the Church, first or last, come back to raise these old funda mental questions; and we need, if it may be, to have them answered, sufficiently at any rate to give us a working the ory of life. I do not undertake to settle all questions, to clear away all difliculties. I do not presume to tell you that I can see through the mystery of life and tell you just what is to be the outcome. I only tell you, as the result of hard study and thinking, that I have come to certain convictions; and these convictions constitute for me a practical working theory of life. There are no more objections against them. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
