This is the transcript of Dr. Holmes talk at the Beverly Theater on November 21, 1954.

Quote:  “Condemnation finally hurts what it condemns but mostly it hurts us. Therefore, we shall have to have the opposite attitude, praise instead of blame, acceptance instead of rejection, faith instead of fear. It is a very difficult thing to live affirmatively. It is far from easy to keep one’s thought straight but it is certain that there is a great principle in the act of being thankful and in the act of gratitude because it is acceptance.”
