Miscellaneous Writings, 1883-1896 by Mary Baker Eddy

A certain apothegm of a Talmudical philosopher [1] suits my sense of doing good. It reads thus: "The noblest charity is to prevent a man from accepting charity; and the best alms are to show and to enable a man to dispense with alms." [5]
In the early history of Christian Science, among my thousands of students few were wealthy. Now, Christian Scientists are not indigent; and their comfortable fortunes are acquired by healing mankind morally, physically, spiritually. The easel of time presents pictures--once [10] fragmentary and faint--now rejuvenated by the touch of God's right hand. Where joy, sorrow, hope, disap- pointment, sigh, and smile commingled, now hope sits dove-like.
To preserve a long course of years still and uniform, [15] amid the uniform darkness of storm and cloud and tempest, requires strength from above,--deep draughts from the fount of divine Love.

In this book, the reader is drawn into conversation with Mary Baker Eddy, the woman through whom Christian healing was returned to the world. She speaks in letters, sermons, articles, and addresses, with compassion, intellect, and inspiration. This book is soothing bedtime reading. It offers inspirational gems for the daily commuter. It encourages the intellectual to stretch and grow mentally. It challenges long-held beliefs of human existence and provides a method for understanding existence and the individual relationship we each have with God. This book is the perfect companion to Mrs. Eddy's best-selling seminal work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, her "manual of the practice of Christian Science Mind-healing."
