Excerpt

They must be true dogmas, else they can- not survive the onslaught of " man's unconquerable mind." Yet again, our philosophy must recognize that the soul of man has more than its intellectual component; it has " exultation, agonies, and love.
These, as well as our minds, our emotions as well as our reason, are our friends if we will have them. We shall cure worry neither at the cost of our intellectual chastity, as by cozening ourselves to believe that which we know to be untrue, nor by striving to effect our end with the aid of the dry light of reason alone, casting scorn on the emotional nature.

If we are to live completely and throw worry to the dogs, we must honor and recognize our complex nature in its completeness. The stoicisms have failed because they denied the emotions, and the emotional- isms have failed because they were opposed to man's mind and the truth which it worships. The cures that have endured, the optimisms that have survived, are those which have affronted no essential part of human nature, the sufficient vindication for both aspects of which, the intellectual and the emotional for the evolutionist, at any rate, is the fact of their survival, their survival with increase, their triumph, indeed, after the supreme test imposed upon them for countless ages by the struggle for existence.
