The Secret of the Ages (7 Vol. Set)
COLLIER, NY 1926 - Published as The Book of Life in 1925 First edition thus General shelf wear, tanned spines, rubbed covers, somewhat worn extremities, previous owner's name on each front endpaper, and lightly age toned pages. Good binding, unmarked text. The World's Greatest Discovery, "You can do as much as you think you can, But you'll never accomplish more; If you're afriad of yourself, young man, There's little for you in store. For failure comes from the inside first, It's there if we only knew it, And you can win, though you face the worst, If you feel that your going to do it."-Edgar A. Guest. What, in your opinion, is the most significant discovery of this modern age? The finding of Dinosaur eggs on the plains of Mongolia, laid-so scientists assert-some 10,000,000 years ago? The unearthing of the Tomb of Tutankham-Amen, with its matchless speciments of a bygone civilization? From "A Heap of Living" The Reilly & Lee Co. The radio-active time cloth by which Professor Lane of Tufts College estimates the age of the earth at 1,250,000,000 years? Wireless? The Aeroplane? Manmade thunderbolts? No-not any of these. The really significant thing about them is that from all this vast research, from the study of all the bygopne ages, men are for the first time beginning to get an understanding of that "Life Principle" which-some how, some way-was brought to this earth thousands or millions of years ago. They are beginning to get an inkling of the infinite power it puts in their hands-to glimpse the untold possibilities it opens up. This is the greatest discovery of modern times-that every man can call upon this "Life Principle" at will, that it is as much the servant of his mind as was every Aladdin's fabled "genie-of-the-lamp" of old; that he has but to understamd it and work in harmony with it to get from it anything he may need-health or happiness, riches or success. To realize the truth of this, you have but to go back for a moment to the beginning of things. The Purpose of Existence, No one can follow it down through the ages without realizing that the whole purpose of existence is GROWTH. Life is dynamic-not static. It is ever moving forward-not standing still. The one unpardonable sin of nature is to stand still, to stagnate. The Gigantosaurus, that was over a hundred feet long and as big as a house; the Tyrannosaurus, that had the strength of a locomotive and was the last word in frightfulness; the Pterodactyl or Flying Dragon- all the giant monsters of Prehistoric Ages-are gone. They ceased to serve a useful purpose. They did not know how to meet the changing conditions. They stood still-stagnated-while the life around them passed them by.
