Excerpt from The Last Christmas Tree: An Idyl of Immortality
Ife on this earth, my children, means warmth. Do not forget that whatever else it may be, life as we know it is warmth. Every living earthly thing is on fire and every fire is perpetually going out. When the warmth, when the fire, which is within us and which is perpetually going out, goes out for good, that is the end of us. It is the end of us as far as the life which we derive from the planet is ourselves. If our planetary life is our only life, when the planetary fire within us dies out, all of us dies out. If planetary fire be not our only vital ﬂame, vital energy, then planetary.
