[Boston Post, November, 1908]
Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy has always believed that those who are entitled to vote should do so, and she has also believed that in such matters no one should seek to dictate the actions of others.
In reply to a number of requests for an expression of her political views, she has given out this statement:–
I am asked, “What are your politics?” I have none, in reality, other than to help support a righteous government; to love God supremely, and my neighbor as myself.
Mary Baker Eddy, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 276
The entire education of children should be such as to form habits of obedience to the moral and spiritual law, with which the child can meet and master the belief in so-called physical laws, a belief which breeds disease.
Mary Baker Eddy
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 62.)
Like a small pebble so gently tossed
Into the world’s large lake
Your prayer ripples my consciousness
From dreams, I now awake.
My heart a kite to wind unfurled
Rejoices at your prayer.
With Spirit’s updraft I can rise
From seascape into air.
