It is wrong so to let doubt,distrust,and fear creep in and get possession of the heart; but,we are human-weakness and error are born with us.When the way in which we are walking is suddenly closed up before us,and we see the opening to no other way,how can we keep the faint heart from sinking ? – If we look to God,He will lift our hearts above the yielding billows.If we stand still,hopefully and trustingly,the high mountain before us will become as a plain,so that we can walk on in a smooth way,joyful and rejoicing.

30 May

Honesty is health-dishonesty the soul`s sickness.To be honest,is to live in obedience to social and divine laws; dishonesty is the violation of these.Is it possible for a diseased body to give physical enjoyment ? No ! Nor can a diseased mind give true mental enjoyment.To seek happiness in the possession of wealth obtained through wrong to the neighbour,is as fruitless as to seek bodily pleasure in those practices which inevitably destroy the health.

The heart never grows truly warm and joyous except when light from above streams through the darkened vapours with which earth-fires have surrounded it.
