Sunday Sermon

“The serenity produced by the contemplation and philosophy of nature is the only remedy for prejudice, superstition, and inordinate self-importance, teaching us that we are all a part of Nature herself, strengthening the bond of sympathy which should exist between ourselves and our brother man, and giving us a strong desire to prevent pain and add pleasure to the life of every creature, whether man or our less evoluted helpers and fellow-passengers on the tide of time, the so-called dumb animals, many of whom can speak fidelity, patience, firmness, pathos, or love as distinctly and as eloquently as we can with our more-or-less clumsy and uncertain words …”
