His boyhood view of Nature:
It seemed to me in those days, to express it in the thoughts of my
boyhood, as if all nature were in silent prayer. I saw majesty, ineffable
wisdom, everywhere because I felt it within me, undeveloped of
course, but the germ was in me because I am a child of the gods.
They are in me because they are in it. To me nature, in the highest
sense of the word religious, has always been a religious structure, her
orderliness, her stateliness, her sympathy, measure her ineffable
power, her wisdom seen everywhere and in everything. They have
always bespoken to me the presence of what in me, so small, lies as
yet scarcely awake, beginning to express itself.
May all seek, find and follow the Path of Buddhas.

Men have planning and tricky minds, and when planning
and tricky minds are endowed with reason, we have tyranny, religious,
social, political, any kind. We have, I say, tyranny: the attempt
by minority, or by majority, or the one upon the many, or the many
upon the one, to impose ideas and thoughts and modes of conduct to
which the others must submit.

To impose ideas on others is tyranny.
We are living under a rule of force; there are forcible repressions
everywhere. And you know what that means in mechanics.
Similarly does the crushing of the aspirations of the human soul, the
forcing down of what must come out some day, produce explosions.

if men and women would follow the
simple rule of ceasing to try to impose their views on other men,
ninety-nine percent of the world's misery, suffering, bloodshed,
crime, would cease; for the rule runs through all human relationships.

Undaunted by the conditions, we Theosophists keep on hammering
and hammering and hammering these truths home, by book,
by precept, by example, and by teaching from the lecture-platform.
In every way possible we try to show our fellow human beings the
way to peace, the way to happiness, yea, even the way to success, by
changing the hearts of men - which means changing their minds
and therefore the conditions in which they live.
