She has been much misunderstood, sometimes maligned, but was always kindly, patient, and pure. Those who refuse to accept her doctrines cannot but admit the beauty and stateliness of the language in which they are clothed. Purely for the wholesome serenity of its diction, and the immaculate virtue of its thought, her life-work, Science and Health, will have an eternal place in English literature.
