    Beloved brethren, Christ, Truth, saith unto you, “Be not afraid!” — fear not sin, lest thereby it master you; 30but only fear to sin. Watch and pray for self-knowledge; since then, and thus, cometh repentance, — and your superiority to a delusion is won.

110:1    Repentance is better than sacrifice. The costly balm of Araby, poured on our Master’s feet, had not the value 3of a single tear.

    Beloved children, the world has need of you, — and more as children than as men and women: it needs your 6innocence, unselfishness, faithful affection, uncontaminated lives. You need also to watch, and pray that you preserve these virtues unstained, and lose them not through 9contact with the world. What grander ambition is there than to maintain in yourselves what Jesus loved, and to know that your example, more than words, makes morals 12for mankind!

Address before the Alumni of the Massachusetts Metaphysical College, 1895

15    My Beloved Students: — Weeks have passed into months, and months into years, since last we met; but time and space, when encompassed by divine presence, 18do not separate us. Our hearts have kept time together, and our hands have wrought steadfastly at the same object-lesson, while leagues have lain between us.
