Excerpt from Voices of Hope, and Other Messages From the Hills: A Series of Essays on the Problem of Life, Optimism, and the Christ
The mind detects a close analogy between this climax of Nature's attainments and the successive aspirations of human life. Of such transformations all experience is com pounded. The world loves mystery, if not darkness, with all that its obscurity conceals. But there is an instinct which seeks the clear visions of cloudless thought. One cannot tear the clouds away. These displays of Nature's supreme beauty never come when one most urgently seeks them, but in her own secret way; and you must quickly oh serve while the vision lasts. Yet even a cloudless day will not admit us to the full perception of the meaning of life. In these days of scientific daring we have learned much about the mere configuration of existence. Life is as mathematical as the sternest could demand. Pay its price, and you Shall have what you seek. The prudent will some time learn to live here in perfect health by obeying Nature's.
