Beautiful phrase. The soul of man, in its struggle toward God knows what, paused elatedly to contemplate the new milestone. Elated as all youth is elated for no other reason than that there is a tomorrow, a tomorrow of unknown and multiple milestones. Elated with the knowledge of progress-that sage and flattering word by which the soul of man explains the baffling phenomenon of its survival.
The great men of the day stood staring through half-closed eyes at the calendars. To anticipate by a single day! But the future no less than the past remains a current mystery. And the great men-the prophets-confined themselves with stentorian caution to the prophecy-a new century has dawned.
