2 x 2 = 5 illustrates how unscientific it is to look at a blackboard and see 2 x 2 = 5; and then realize that 2 x 2 = 4; then turn to the blackboard to see if it has changed on the board, ere we believe the manifestation is complete. Never look at the body to see if the error has disappeared. If we do, and see the error as physical, or belonging to the individual, or see that man has a material body, then we do not trust scientifically. Now, you know that one and one are two, two and two are four, three times three are nine. You know that much of the truth of numbers, and it is all-power­ful, no matter how much error you know. As it is with num­bers, so it is with Science. The little you do know is real, and reflects God, no matter how much error you know that you have not worked out of yet; for as you know more and more of Truth, all error disappears from thought. No error can bind us beyond our belief in it.   Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea  of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.125)

God will sustain you.  I pray for you daily.  He answers my prayers.  Love has not said “seek ye me” – in vain.  Be what Love wants you to be and then the warfare will be over.  Silence all that is unlike the true image, then you will have peace, freedom, Heaven right here.  God grant you this attainment.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Stetson, Augusta E., Letters of Mary Baker Eddy to Augusta E. Stetson, C.S.D., p.56)

Do you spend much time on condemning yourself? That is self- murder. Our whole salvation lies in seeing ourselves as God made us, in His likeness, spiritual. If you find yourself beginning to grieve about yourself, refuse to look at it as you would a cut finger you want to heal. The doubts and fears you speak of are doubtless not your thoughts, but the mental suggestions of other minds, whispered into your thought. To all such whisperings answer – ‘I don’t believe you, you are a liar’. ‘Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.’ Only Love can lift you above it all. Love, Love, Love. Let nothing crush you – rise immediately. Love has no poison to impart. The only Mind is Life and Love and purity.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons, p.77)

May 20, 1903. Know that a shock only makes us go higher. Death is fear, and one awakes to find that experience (fear) did not kill him. Now let us know when mortal mind shocks us we can use it to go up higher and so know it cannot reach us there. (This was said after a shock during a drive.)  Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.3)

Now worry does not demonstrate. All the mental energy one spends on worry would be better used in faith. Just pray when you do not know what to think, or sing a hymn to yourself until worry goes. Nothing happens out of order, everything happens in the order of development for you. You pray to learn; then why be regretful when the page turns over and a hard lesson comes next? Let resentment go, and just roll up your sleeves, so to speak, and get to work and declare that you are going to squeeze all the benefit out of that experience that you can. Just learn to be glad of these chances to impersonalize error.   Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons, (Red Book), p.77)
