She is born a creature of Enchantment. In virtue of regularly recurring periods of exaltation, she is a Sibyl ; in virtue of love, a Magician. By the fineness of her intuitions, the cunning of her wiles often fantastic, often beneficent she is a Witch, and casts spells, at least and lowest lulls pain to sleep and softens the blow of calamity. All primitive peoples start alike ; this we see again and again in contrives and dreams ; she is the mother of fancy, of the gods. She possesses glimpses of the second sight, and has wings to soar into the infinitude of longing and imagination. The better to count the seasons, she scans the sky. But earth has her heart as well. Her eyes stoop to the amorous flowers; a flower herself in her young beauty, she learns to know them as play fellows and intimates. A woman, she asks them to heal the men she loves. Pathetic in their simplicity these first beginnings of Religion and Science! Later on, each province will be separated, we shall see mankind specialise as medicineman, astrologer or prophet, necromancer, priest, physician. But in these earliest days womanis all in all, and plays every part.
