My own Demonstration

In Truth-seeking, we never blunder upon success. It would be absurd in the endeavor to solve a problem in mathematics to begin to "cipher" without a definite idea of the purpose of our calculation.

We are no more sure of the satisfactory solution of our life problem if we work in an objectless manner. Today, swayed by the impulses of benevolence, we may bring material supply to our neighbor's need; to-morrow, impelled by pity, we may drop a tear or speak a word of consolation to the sorrowing and thus effect a certain good, but we are not, in this indefinite way, working to a definite end in the achievement of our own demonstration, and we shall not blunder upon success.
