Excerpt from Tracts of the American Unitarian Association: Army Series
N 0 higher or more comprehensive charge than this can be addressed to anybody, if we take in all it means. TO be fully a Man, thoroughly furnished in all manly attributes, complete in all points of manly character and action, - that is the highest condition we can conceive of or aspire to. Man, as he was meant to be, and as it is possible for him to be, is the top and ﬂower of God's creation. He includes in his being and his action all that makes the worth of the world, the nobleness of life, the qualities of the hero, saint, and Christian. If we might but attain to a completed manliness, there is no more left to be or do this side eternity. To redeem man from his degeneracy, and bring him up to the standard of his Own nature, and re store in him the powers and just proportions of his own being, to that tend all the methods of God's providence and grace; for that prophets preached.
