Description

At the beginning of the book there are two quotes. The first quote reads, "'I am the same to all mankind. They who honestly serve other gods involuntarily worship me. I am He who partaketh of all worship, and I am the reward of all worshippers.' (Supposed to come from the mouth of Brahma.)" The second quote reads, "We strive in vain to look beyond heights. We cry aloud, and the only answer is the echo of our wailing cry;... but in the night...Hope sees a star, and listening Love can hear the rustle of a wing!" The book is divided into 12 chapters. The chapters are The Doctor, Patsy Pringle, Mrs. Runabout, The Harpies, Loving, Friendship, Suggestions of the Sea, Thanksgiving, The Materialist, Presentiments, Christmas Musings, and From Night to Light. According to the author, her perpetual aspiration had been to understand life, and the point of this book is to bind together her musings of life into order to attempt understanding.
