THE HISTORIC HOPE OF IMMORTALITY

From the October 1884 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Among all peoples of all ages known to history there has been held, it is asserted, a positive belief in the continuance of the soul of man past the manifestation in the flesh. And, because this belief has so widely obtained among the children of men, some have concluded that it is the God-given instinct drawing thought to its true destination as unerringly as the wild fowl's flight is directed toward its home through the trackless blue airs of heaven.
