The Two Offers
Excerpt of a tale that relates the tragedy of a woman who mistakenly thinks romance and married love to be the only goal and center of her life.
"Talk as you will of woman's deep capacity for loving. of the strength of her affectional nature. I do not deny it; but will the mere possession of any human love, fully satisfy all the demands of her whole being? . . . But woman—the true woman—if you would render her happy, it needs more than the mere development of her affectional nature. Her conscience should be enlightened, her faith in the true and right established, and scope given to her Heaven-endowed and God-given faculties."
