Do not dismiss the rose

From the December 1988 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Do not dismiss the rose, or turn your back on the setting sun, or fear a word in favor of larks will brand you materialist. The beauties we see and hear seem matter-born and bound, but they hint at the glory that is there beyond the bud on the cherry tree, beyond the butterfly wing and the star, on the far far side of the dove.
