It does not contain the solution of all girl problems. It is not a great book, it is simple and concrete. It is a record of some things about which the girls I have known have compelled me to think.
I have but one request to make of those who read it-that they also think-not of the book, not of the author, but of the girls-for action is born of thought. Includes: The Rights of a Girl - The Handicapped Girl - The Privileged Girl - The Girl who is easily Led - The Girl Who Is Misunderstood - The Indifferent Girl - The Girl who Worships the Twin Idols - The Girl who Drifts - The Girl with High Ideals - The Average Girl - The Girl and the Universe - In the Hands of a Triad - Thou Shalt Not - Thou Shalt - A Matter of Cultivation - A Plea and a Promise - A Person not a Fact - The Glory of the Climax.
Faithful servants of a religion whose law is duty one finds among girls and honors them. Good and faithful servants of a religion whose law is obedience there are among girls. But neither of these have found the glory of the climax. The climax is Love. The supreme command of the Founder of true religion is-Thou shalt Love. The religion of love is a girls religion and she can never be satisfied with any other.
If those who have tried to teach her religion have failed to show her this, then they have succeeded in giving her only a set of laws to be obeyed or a list of things she should not do. Love gives to Thou Shalt and Thou Shalt Not power without which they can accomplish little.
Love transforms hard, disagreeable, empty service and makes it glorious. No one knows this better than a girl. She has done things when necessity compelled her to do them, and she has done them when love compelled her to do them. She knows the difference. Jesus founded His Kingdom on the knowledge He had of Love. He knew the kingdom would stand.
On his lonely island of banishment dreaming in the twilight, with all the struggle and attainment behind him Napoleon realized it as he said, Caesar, Charlemagne, I, have founded empires. They were founded on force and have perished. Jesus Christ has founded a kingdom on Love, and to this day there are millions who would die for Him.
