Author Quotes

Experience is more forceful than logic.

The reward of the souls in the world beyond is their ability to attain the true concept of God which is a source of the most wonderful felicity, an attainment impossible for man in this early life because of the disturbances on the part of matter.

Success depends on faith and good deeds... not upon the knowledge of the proofs which lead to them.

The receiver of a gift is not the chooser.
