Go into your “secret “upper chamber” (observatory) shut out observations and the world since the kingdom of good cometh not thereby – and pray.  No better possible place hath earth for prayer than that.  But to reap the reward take up your cross overcome the fear of man that bringeth a snare.  Tell your wife and her servants never to disturb you at those hours of prayer, fix them at four hours each day for reading, prayer and meditation alone with God.  Let your rule for this have no more exception than if you were on an island in the sea.  Be strong and firm on this basis till you are ready to feel “I have had my vacation I am ready for harder work.”    Mary Baker Eddy  (Gottschalk, Stephen, Rolling Away The Stone, p.112)
