Deliberately making choices

• A man deliberately makes a choice.‭ ‬

A man’s religion should never be a Sunday religion,‭ ‬or a death-bed religion.‭

‬It should not be the kind of sentiment that depends upon tragedy‭; ‬that is melted by the sun or blown away by the breezes of the mountain top.

‭ ‬It should be a matter of wisdom,‭ ‬deep set,‭ ‬logical,‭ ‬real— a something that is continually present,‭ ‬and takes full and calm possession of the mind.

The Ambassador of the Coming Age, May 1868
