Before the Sublime Mystery of Life and Spirit

Before the sublime mystery of life and spirit, the mystery of infinite space and endless time, we stand in reverent awe…This much we know: we are at one phase of the immortality of life.  The mighty stream of life flows on, and, in this mighty stream, we too flow on…not lost…but each eternally significant.  For this I feel: the spirit never betrays the person who trusts it.  Physical life may be defeated but life goes on; character survives, goodness lives and love is immortal.


Colonel Robert G Ingersoll
