LOVE FOR MUSIC
The faculty of music gives us a sense of musical sounds, their discord and harmony, and allows us to enjoy the music that is everywhere on earth, and in heaven.
FLOW OF LANGUAGE
Human beings are the noblest works of God, and require the noblest gifts for communicating with their fellows. The faculty of language provides them with this gift; and allows them to speak forth golden words of eloquence.
REASONING ABILITY – CAUSALITY
The law of cause and effect is universal, and this reasoning faculty enables us to comprehend it. It seeks first principles, and wants to see from the beginning to the end.
COMPARING ABILITY – CRITICISM
The faculty of comparison gives us the ability to observe analogies, and to contrast, compare, and criticize the wondrous varieties of ideas, things and people.
All human beings are born Physiognomists. It is this faculty of human nature which allows us to read our fellows – who always carry their characters in their faces.
AGREEABLENESS – COURTESY
The agreeable quality inclines human beings to be courteous and amiable one towards another. Life would lose its charm without social agreeableness, hence beings have this quality which adds a charm to their manners, and good manners win.
NOTE – The scriptural passages in this book were searched out by George Burgess, the author of this book, in 1868, and now revised.
