From ‘Journal’, Vol. V, p. 55 – Voices of Spring – 1
(1887) What should be the voices of Spring in the human heart?
Resurrected and purified desires; praise, for man’s ability to seek and find the Kingdom of Heaven here-the reign of harmony that furnishes glimpses of the great Source whence cometh all earth’s beautiful hieroglyphics of Love; joy, that human character may be stately as the cedars of Lebanon, and Truth thrive like the willows by the water-courses; humility, bowing down before His goodness, and peering through mortal mind; industry, arranging with beauty each budding thought as it puts forth new glories; higher aspirations and purer pleasures, which give spiritual energy and power to work for man and in obedience to God. Mary Baker Eddy
