The world would collapse without Intelligence and its idea; there is no chance for argument here, philosophy nor skepticism can change the scientific fact that God is and was; and that man, His reflex shadow is, and was forever. We find no diminution of happiness in learning we are Spirit and not matter, Soul and not body; but a vast increase of all that elevates, purifies, and blesses man.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.185)

Man gives neither shape or comeliness to beauty; it has these before he perceives them; distinct outline, coloring, etc., are of Soul, else their idea were not given in the universe and man; therefore, beauty is a thing of Life, the offspring of Intelligence, and not matter.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.185)

“I look on man as the designate of the Word, but, to my view, the idea of race is superior to the idea of sex.  Indeed, may we not look forward to a human condition, when perfection is nearer, wherein neither male nor female shall be known, and the race may reproduce itself otherwise than now?”  Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Fragments Gathered Form Unpublished Items Ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy, p.69)

May 21, 1903. The true Science – divine Science – will be lost sight of again unless we arouse ourselves. This demonstrating to make matter build up is not Science. This building up of churches, the writing of articles and the speaking in public is the old way of building up a cause. The way I brought this Cause into sight was through HEALING: and now these other things would come in and hide it just as was done in the time of Jesus. Now this Cause must be saved and I pray God to be spared for this work…   Now you see what we have to do for the world; be a transparency for SPIRIT. Things must turn and overturn, until He whose right it is shall reign.   Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.3)

(From the Bliss Knapp book, p. 11) Mrs. Eddy possessed the ability to read the unspoken thoughts of her pupils. For example: A student called at her home for an interview and was told that Mrs. Eddy would see her in a few moments. While the student was looking out the window as she waited for Mrs. Eddy, she saw an intoxicated man across the street. She began to ponder the case, and asked herself, ‘What is that seeming error? Am I drunk or is that man drunk? Is the error in me or is it in him?’ Immediately Mrs. Eddy, who had entered the room unobserved, said aloud, ‘No, that error is not in your thought.’  Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.256)
