Someone said to Mrs. Eddy, ‘I love you.’ She said, ‘Don’t love me (person) but LOVE, then you will include me and all, but if you love some person you are shutting out Love; if you were to love a person you would probably love me more than any one else, but if you loved person you would have the result of it. Oh! the infinitude of divine Science.’   Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.7)

Mr. Kimball asked Mrs. Eddy, “After we have helped a patient, how far are we entitled to go in our work?” She answered, “When they come to you and ask for your help — help them. Then if they come back and have done what you told them and wish more help — help them. But if they are not obedient to what you ask them to do, refuse to help them further; for patients such as this do not want your light; they want your oil. Shed your light upon their path freely, but do not give them of your oil.”  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.108)

SPIRIT – 15

The calm, strong currents of true spirituality, the manifestations of which are health, purity, and self-immolation, must deepen human experience, until the beliefs of material existence are seen to be a bald imposition, and sin, disease, and death give everlasting place to the scientific demonstration of divine Spirit and to God’s spiritual, perfect man.   (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures, p.99:23)

SPIRIT – 14

The admission to one’s self that man is God’s own likeness sets man free to master the infinite idea. This conviction shuts the door on death, and opens it wide towards immortality. The understanding and recognition of Spirit must finally come, and we may as well improve our time in solving the mysteries of being through an apprehension of divine Principle. At present we know not what man is, but we certainly shall know this when man reflects God.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures, p.90:24)

SPIRIT – 13

There is but one spiritual existence, — the Life of which corporeal sense can take no cognizance. The divine Principle of man speaks through immortal sense. If a material body — in other words, mortal, material sense — were permeated by Spirit, that body would disappear to mortal sense, would be deathless. A condition precedent to communion with Spirit is the gain of spiritual life.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures, p.72:1)

SPIRIT – 12

Man as the offspring of God, as the idea of Spirit, is the immortal evidence that Spirit is harmonious and man eternal. Jesus was the offspring of Mary’s self-conscious communion with God. Hence he could give a more spiritual idea of life than other men, and could demonstrate the Science of Love — his Father or divine Principle.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures, p.29:30)
