Love is an element of itself,
without any form.
It has no length or breadth,
or height or depth.
It neither comes nor goes.
It fills all space.
And melts all error down
that comes within its power.
What is the element that receives all sensation? Love for

spirit and truth may destroy every obstacle in the way of
the child's happiness, and develop it into a self-governing
responsible being. Then why is it not so?
Because from our religious and social education no
woman can carry out the high principle of her affection.
She is taught by established morality to put restrictions on
the child that would make her miserable in the child's
The laws of love are the destruction
of the laws of error,
And they make us a law to ourselves.
Love is a substance like food
that comes from heaven to feed the soul.
