From the May 1934 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IF Mrs. Eddy had been satisfied to remain within the comfort of her own healing; if she had been content to enjoy her metaphysical discovery as merely her own private philosophy; or had she accepted conformity and peace rather than the sacrifices and hardships of the pioneer — where would Christian Science, and you, and I, and the world be today? Her vision of the truth, her love for mankind, her unselfish, unswerving determination to share what she had with others, brought her through trial and effort, suffering and demonstration, into being not only the Discoverer, but also the Founder, of Christian Science.
