Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Alfred Tennyson, died 1892, aged 83.
Truth is continually presenting new aspects, which call for new forms of statement. More and more Christ is recognized as supreme authority. The constructive principle of theology is no longer Sovereignty, but Love. Christ inspired the love-atmosphere, from which have come multiplied philanthropies. Hence the increasing application of Christian principle to all forms of life, in society, industry, and the State, in literature, art, and diversion. A fiew morality has come, the law of Love instead of the code of abstract right.
William W. Adams.
Do you wish for kindness? be kind;
Do you wish for truth? be true;
Your world is a reflex of you. He who gives himself airs of importance exhibits credentials of impotence.
Lavater, died 1801, aged 60.
God, overflowing with goodness, desiring to have angels and men to whom He could do good, made men in his own image to be rulers of the earth. The image of God consisted in power of thought and freedom of will. Man decides on his own actions. God assists by his grace
those who will avail themselves of it. With all this, it remains true that virtue comes from God. He implanted it in nature; by his support alone it is maintained. Nature, rational and free, is a gift of grace. To be natural is to be virtuous; conversion is a return from the unnatural.
John of Damascus, died 780, aged 94.
Let me ask, ere in the night's repose I rest,
Pythagoras, died aged 74, B. C. 504.
I have enjoyed the refinement of the best society, but I have never sat in the palaces of England without being pained by the inequality of which the inordinate luxury was the token.
I was anxious that our country should take the lead in the disarmament of the nations.
Charles Sumner, born Jan. 6, 1811.
