Excerpt from The Evolution of Immortality

The sphinx, with the teeming breasts of a woman and the cruel claws of a tiger, is the eternal parable of Nature. She is equally equipped to produce and nourish or to rend and kill. Men of all ages have tried to gather from her stony gaze which she means to do. Not a few will turn away with impatience from another attempt to read the eternal riddle. "If a man die shall he live again?" is the burden of the old drama of Uz. An endless human interest attaches to the question, so strong that however often it be abandoned it must needs be once again renewed. It beckons while it eludes. There is no reason to believe that men will ever be content to sit down before it or to definitely abandon it as insoluble. Once and again an answer has been found.
