From childhood I had belonged to an orthodox church, but my questions as to the nature of God and the fundamental reason for existence were never satisfactorily answered there, or by any of the books on philosophy and psychology which I had diligently read. I brooded over all the seeming hate, injustice, and futility of material gain, and life did not appear to me to be worth living.

Material remedies and treatments of great variety were faithfully applied by the finest physicians and specialists in the endeavor to build me up, but without any beneficial results. After six months there was no improvement, and I became so discouraged that thoughts of suicide haunted me night and day.
