Page 34 - But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held ; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
Page 48 - The silent intercession and unvoiced imploring is an honest and potent prayer to heal and save. The audible prayer may be offered to be heard of men, though ostensibly to catch God's ear, — after the fashion of Baal's prophets, — by speaking loud enough to be heard; but when the heart prays, and not the lips, no dishonesty or vanity influences the petition. Prophet and apostle have glorified God in secret prayer, and He has rewarded them openly. Prayer can neither change God, nor bring His designs...
Page 28 - While material man and the physical senses receive no spiritual idea, and feel no sensation of divine Love, spiritual man and his spiritual senses are drinking in the nature and essence of the individual infinite.

This Principle is Mind, Substance, Life, Truth, Love. When understood, Principle is found to be the only term that fully conveys the ideas of God, — one Mind, a perfect man, and Divine Science.
Page 44 - He who pointed 9 the way of Life conquered also the drear subtlety of death. It was not to appease the wrath of God, but to show the allness of Love and the nothingness of hate, sin, and death, 1t that Jesus suffered.
Page 34 - There was never a moment in which evil was real. This 3 great fact concerning all error brings with it another and more glorious truth, that Good is supreme. As there is none beside Him, and He is all Good, there can be no evil. Simply uttering this great thought is not enough ! We must live it, until God becomes the All and Only of our being.
Page 24 - It shows 21 that matter and mortal mind have neither origin nor existence in the eternal Mind. Thinking otherwise is what estranges mortals from divine Life and Love. God is 24 All-in-all. He is Spirit; and in nothing is He unlike Himself. Nothing that "worketh or maketh a lie" is to be 1 found in the divine consciousness.
