THE COSMIC COMEDY
THE VITAL URGE
(“H. C. ANGLICAN")
“The People's Cyclopedia," etc.
When Time began,—then, - deathless eons met,
To good eternal down the ages plighted.
What?- Though their lives may never be united
Their pure minds blend in glance of eyes delighted;
To H. E. M.-Cor Moria-"The Eon."

TO THE ABOVE GOOD COMRADES OF DIFFERENT FAITHS, WHOSE
INSPIRATION WROUGHT ITS CONSUMMATION,
IS CORDIALLY DEDICATED
PURPOSE THAT WELDED OUR FRIENDSHIPS
“This is such an odd and incomprehensible world ... What a complex riddle, a complexity of complexities!"
“All human progress is in a circle; or, to use a more accurate figure, in an ascending spiral curve. While we fancy ourselves going straight forward and attaining, at every step, an entirely new position of affairs, we do actually return to something long ago tried and abandoned, but which we now find etherealized, refined and perfected to its ideal. The past is but a coarse and sensual prophecy of the future.”
"At some brighter period, when the world shall have grown ripe for it, in Heaven's own time, a new truth will be revealed, in order to establish the whole relation between man and woman on a surer ground-of mutual happiness."
"I have always envied the Catholics their faith in that sweet sacred Virgin Mother, who stands between them and the Deity, intercepting somewhat of his awful splendor, but permitting his love to stream upon the worshiper more intelligibly to human comprehension through the medium of a woman's tenderness."
“To see the best men move in sympathy and harmony with the best women, and to see both linked together by zeal and service to all ranks of their fellow-creatures, this is what my heart desires, this is what American men and women owe to the country whose debt to them in the past may be recognized, while its claim upon them in the future extends far beyond the limits and the records with which we have become familiar.”
- Julia Ward Howe.
