In the Book our Mother Read

We search the world for truth; we cull
The good, the pure, the beautiful,
From graven stone and written scroll,
From all the flower-fields of the soul:
And, weary seekers of the best,
We come back laden from our quest,
To find that all the sages said
Is in the Book our mother read.


Nine hundred and ninety-nine out of a thousand of the theological books printed twenty-five years ago are now worthless and unsalable. But the same thing may be said of books of many other kinds,—medical, philosophical, scientific. Not a single instrument used in the laboratories of Harvard College forty years ago has any value now excepting as a curiosity for a museum. It is astonishing how many things we have lost, to the great advantage of the human race.—Christian Register.
