But to the heart of the sufferer softened through anguish, to the soul of the sinner strengthened through abandon, and to the spirit of the child quickened from its nearness to fairies and angels.Such as are pitied, despised or condemned I call my brothers and sisters. Borne from the stagnant surface of being into the wild engulfment of its whirlpool soul, these have sounded the misery of the depths, have lain half-dead amid the wreckage on the shore, and are now able to appreciate and determined to attain the glory of the heights illumed by Truth.Come, let us mount together. I have explored both the valley and the summit. And I promise you the way is plain.This classic includes the following chapters:I. Fasting for HealthII. Fasting for EnjoymentIII.
