Page 27 - And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold : them also must I bring, and they shall hear my voice ; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Page 55 - No man, they say, is a hero to his valet de chambre. Charles Bradlaugh was a hero most of all to those who lived at his side, nearest to him in blood or friendship. It is, perhaps, the finest testimony to his worth that those who were closest to him admired him and loved him even more than any other. No man was more perfect in the home. Simple in his...

As we deepen our own spiritual nature,...
Page 118 - First, the value of the individual, which the older nations of the world had not recognised to the same extent. They built their civilisations on the family The family was the unit, not the individual. Christianity struck the keynote of individualism, and it was in order that that might be fully and thoroughly developed that some of the earlier doctrines for a time were submerged in Christendom. The great doctrine of re-incarnation, taught in the primitive church and reappearing in our own days,...
Page 128 - When the world religion has emerged, then every man shall find in himself the power to know, and therefore the spiritual consciousness. Never try, then, to impose from without a belief from which another man shrinks. The moment he has risen to the place where it is visible that moment it will shine out before his eyes.
