From the January 1890 issue of The Christian Science Journal

For days and years this yearning has filled my heart,—to know "What is Love?" The kingdom of heaven is by demonstration and power, and the kingdom of heaven is the kingdom of Love; there fore, however much it is declared to us, "God is Love" we cannot know for ourselves without demonstration and power through the understanding of the Principle and rule. When we see an answer to a mathematical problem and know it is correct, because another is a true mathematician—though we may be satisfied of its correctness, the problem can be no benefit to us, unless we ourselves work it out.
