BY L. MARIA CHILD.

“When the Sun is setting, cool fall its gleams upon the earth, and
the shadows lengthen ; but they all point toward the Morning.”

JEAN PAUL RICHTER.

“I am fully convinced that the Soul is indestructible, and that ...
activity will continue through eternity. It is like the Sun,
which, to our eyes, seems to set in night; but it has
in reality only gone to diffuse its light

elsewhere." - GOETHE.
