From the January 1909 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It has been said that "to be great is to be misunderstood. " The reception accorded the great demonstrator of God's power certainly goes to prove the truth of this statement, and noble men and women in all ages, who have had glimpses of the same truth which Jesus taught and demonstrated, who have been inspired with ideals above and contrary to the world's standard of righteousness, and have tried to hand them forth to the world, have been wofully misunderstood and misrepresented by the very ones who should have been their stanchest supporters.
