From the January 1901 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Some time ago, at a Wednesday evening meeting, the leader said that the word "hungry" most clearly expressed the crying need of this day and generation.

Many of us realize that this means the craving for Love, not the niggardly affection which finds its only satisfaction in exacting a like return from others,—not the blind human devotion that is ready to be wounded and repulsed at every turn, but the broad and generous spirit of Christian fellowship, expressed in Love.

There is an exquisite joy in reaching out toward people with helpful hands and not feeling that we must have ready a shell of cool reserve to draw back into, at the slightest warning of pride or false delicacy.
