From the May 1939 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Because the agelessness of man, as a child of God, is not generally understood, the fear of old age besets men in one way or another, saddening their thought and interfering with their usefulness. The dread of what seems an inescapable decline often looms in the thought of individuals even before what is commonly accepted as mankind's prime is reached, and youthful vigor is thus robbed of its joyous spontaneity.
