Sickness is the fruit either of ignorance...

From the October 1885 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Sickness is the fruit either of ignorance or sin. Humboldt said: "The time will come when a sick man will be looked upon with the same abhorrence that we now regard a thief or a liar, for the reason that one condition is as much under the subjection of mind as the other; as susceptible of correction as the other."

"The airs of Spring may never play
Among the ripening corn,
Nor freshness of the flowers of May
Blow through the Autumn morn;
Yet shall the blue-eyed gentian look
Through fringed lids to heaven,
And the pale aster in the brook
Shall see its image given."
