Elizabeth Towne

This is a wonderful universe--a one-verse. There is an orbit for every being and a being for every orbit. Every orbit is written on a heart, a soul, and may be found only by consulting that soul.

That is the only difference between the loaf of bread and the man. The loaf of bread has to be raised in spite of itself--it has to be kept at just the right temperature from the outside. But a man has in himself the power to make his own temperature. He can work himself up to the rising point.

The only reason a man does not open his heart to Love and Will, and begin straightway to rise again, is because he does not yet understand that the buffetings of “fate” are no more “against” him than are the kneadings of the housewife against the success of her bread.
