Davis describes humanity as directed by two impulses: "In the first place, by the impulse to live a full, rich, abundant life, and in the second place, to assure to our children all that we have had and more." Davis believes the second to be more powerful.

This is from the bound collection—“bundle #5”—that includes sermons from January 2, 1910 to January 15, 1911.
