A Garland of Wishes
“For is He not the secret of it all; the new, untried, unblemished vessel of all possibility. Could He not was and grow and come to man’s estate and lead us down new paths of goodness? Inherent in the Downey head, sleep crumpled face and starfish band, the awakening spirit, lies man’s hope..”
