It is of inestimable value to know that man's divine birthright is not only immunity from disease, but also positive, robust health. I am especially grateful, however, to learn by experience that an honest, earnest study of Christian Science will likewise transform the character. Among my chiefest blessings I count the exposure and the expulsion of much selfishness, criticism, cynicism, aloofness, and so-called temperament.
