Excerpt from Talks to Bereans
When we look at the universe Of matter, as far as it is open to our inspection, we are struck with one contrast which it presents to the universe Of mind or Spirit: in the former, order and harmony is the rule, disorder and discord the exception in the latter, disorder, discord, and wretchedness are largely in the ascendant. Even much that seems, at first Sight, to be disorder in the material system, proves, on fuller investigation, to be subservient to harmonious ends; but in regard to the moral na ture, we are painfully conscious in our own experi ence, and impressed by all our Observations, 'that there is an almost utter want Of peace and har mony, and a fearful prevalence Of unrest and wretchedness.
