We placed the wreaths upon the splendid granite sarcophagus, and at its feet, and felt that only the earthly robe we loved so much was there. The pure, tender, loving spirit which loved us so tenderly, is above us -- loving us, praying for us, and free from all suffering and woe -- yes, that is a comfort, and that first birthday in another world must have been a far brighter one than any in this poor world below!
I don't dislike babies, though I think very young ones rather disgusting.
None of you can ever be proud enough of being the child of SUCH a Father who has not his equal in this world -- so great, so good, so faultless.
