Morning Lectures : Twenty Discourses, Delivered Before the Friends of Progress in the City of New York, in the Winter and Spring of 1863 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Morning Lectures: Twenty Discourses, Delivered Before the Friends of Progress in the City of New York, in the Winter and Spring of 1863 Now I find myself called upon to speak in emphatic words against the desperate, dismal disease-promoting, despair-propagating tendency of Hebrew mythology, which is the accredited theology and petted religion of Christendom. And it seems to me that, if there be vouchsafed enough light and strength at this time, we may do something towards augmenting the force of this protest by considering the question of Defeats and Victories. There are two propositions which stand before my mind as incontrovertible, and as necessary to a distinct and full comprehension of the subject: First: That forms, vehicles, mediums, organiza tions, institutions, equipments, agents, attorneys, are transient, while that which they convey is permanent and eternal - and, therefore, that even what are called Accidents, are but the conductors or viaducts of laws that are just as full of the wisdom of Deity as the most delicious blessings that ever hugged your heart.
