Health of Nerves, Marriage Love, Love of Children, Friendship, Love of Home and Continuity.

HEALTH OF NERVES
Health of nerves means health of brain – the brain being the fountain head of the nervous system.  When the nerves are out of order, the whole being is out of order.

MARRIAGE LOVE
Marriage was the first social arrangement of earth.  This quality of marriage love account for it.  It attracts man and woman towards each other, and joins them together as one in heart and one in life.

LOVE OF CHILDREN
Only for this quality infancy would be neglected.  It allows people to love children in general , but to especially love their own.  In marriage life it gives rise to the hope of being a parent.

FRIENDSHIP
Human beings cannot thrive in loneliness, hence we have the quality of friendship, inclining us to form communities, win friend, and join our neighbors in building up a happy social system which is good for each and good for all.

LOVE OF HOME
Love of home inspires the sol ‘when homeward bound’.  It longs for a happy home and friends.  And it loves the ‘old house at home’, far, far, away.  A happy home is heaven on earth.

CONTINUITY
All nature is continually at work.  There is no standing still.  And this quality adapts us to the universal law of eternal work.  It gives us preserving application, oneness of thought and feeling, and says, one thing at a time.
