Edmund Sears Quote


Picture Quote:



For lo! the days are hastening on, 
 By prophet-bards foretold, 
 When with the ever-circling years, 
 Comes round the age of gold; 
 When Peace shall over all the earth 
 Its ancient splendors fling 
 And the whole world send back the song 
 Which now the angels sing.  - Edmund Sears

Metaphysical assertions, however, are statements of the psyche, and are therefore psychological.... Whenever the Westerner hears the word psychological, it always sounds to him like only psychological.
