My conception of God has been changed – I never had any idea of the real beauty of love – I have commenced to think about immortality – There is nothing in life compared to loving a girl whose presence can both inspire the loftiest ideas, together with the most common fellowship of laughter and contentment.
Charles Burchfield, January 30, 1922
