Being Extracts From the Letters of Our No. 2 Correspondence Circle.
"Immortality is a state of life, and not continuance."
"After all, we have to be ourselves, and speak for ourselves."
"Constant aspiration is the only prayer. To cease to aspire is to never pray. That spasmodic supplication, often called prayer, is futile. To earnestly aspire is to come into harmony with the inexorable Will,'...and though it is inexorable, it is so tenderly, beautifully, divinely."
"Get up early, friends, and see the dear old sun roll his jolly face up over the house-tops, or the hills and trees, if you are so fortunate as to be among the latter, and you will find your outlook on life wonderfully different from what it is if you begin your day when everyone else has gone about his or her work long ago. There is a freshness and exquisiteness about the early morning, even in town, and how much more so anywhere within sight of grass and trees. One gets a vision of something much loftier than what one sees in the sordid high noon when day has its working suit on."
—M. G. G.
