The solar system, from the highest spiritual point down to the lowest physical, is one vast organized whole, nowhere dead, nowhere unconscious, nowhere useless, nowhere accidental; but carefully gathered, ordered, and supervised to express the indwelling life and intelligence of its Creator and to subserve His plans. In fact, it is one gigantic Being, throbbing with vitality and consciousness. The distance of stars from us is so great that it conveys no impression on the mind...

They are restless, busy, venturesome, daring, bold, can cut out paths in life for themselves; are innovators, pioneers, abandoning the old and seeking after the new. They are self-reliant and ambitious; often make noticeable, popular, or notorious figures in their sphere...
Page 43 - ... clerk, the shop assistant, and the laborer; and they range from the wise to the foolish, from the actively ambitious, selfish, or unselfish to the passive, inert, and unenterprising.

They take the circuitous path when the direct road is not open, and sometimes even when it is open. This tendency shows itself in a great variety of ways. They can adapt themselves to the habits and moods of other people; they can easily see both sides of a question, and can honestly sympathize with...
