She was an eminent philosopher, humanitarian, feminist, animal lover and animal rights activist, and vegetarian advocate of that century. We now share with you selections from the periodical - The World's Advance Thought. THE VOICE OF GOD "O the Divine persuasiveness, the speech of everlasting tenderness, the Voice that is God's Heart, in music running over, informing all the barren wastes of Night, transforming all its darkness into day. Worlds hear it, and they clothe themselves in flowers; Suns hear it, and grow opulent with worlds; Heaven hears it, and each Angel leaps to song, and every heart melts in its kindred heart, and all the Universe melts into God..." WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A VEGETARIAN "'Vegetarian' comes from the old Latin root, 'vegetus,' meaning 'vigorous,' 'healthful,' 'vital,' it means much more. With a body built of clean, humane food, refining processes take place which entirely regenerate and place one on a plane of ethical and spiritual eminence which vibrates an atmosphere of the essence of all that in righteous and holy."
