The Circle of His Destiny

     "Mankind is like someone tied to a tree by an elastic cord. He tries to walk in a straight line towards his ideal, which he sees before him. The cord stretches and its pull becomes stronger. Ultimately the man is obliged to give up following that straight line, so he adopts another line and follows that until the tension again pulls him round. The outcome is that he describes the circle of his destiny, instead of the straight line of his ideal."  - Henry T. Edge, (Eclectic Theosophist, No. 67)
