circa 1902-1904


"The World of Fancy" feels more like a draft of a sermon -- written in haste, but with passion and feeling. The central point is that no matter how difficult things are, God is now today pouring his spirit unto all flesh, and if you cannot see that now, you will not see it in future. The point of suffering is to transform it into wisdom and good deeds. There is no world without pain.
