Excerpt from Mere Hints, Moral and Social
Brieﬂy, the articles are the principles of the strenuous life applied to social morality. And these principles of the strenuous moral life are at bottom nothing less than the principles of the Great Master Who declared that the kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent bear it away. The saving cry of modern society is not Back to Plato, or Back to Kant, but Back to Christ and His Gospel. And it is in the hope of helping, in some small degree, to bring about the realization of this truth that we send forth the booklet.
The writer takes this occasion to express his thanks for the courtesy extended him by The Sun management, and his deep obligations to Mr. John J. Nelligan, vice-president of the Safe Deposit and Trust Company of Baltimore, through whose urging the papers were first writ ten and published.
