From p. 3- "Because of his [Alfred Osmond's] idealism, his dedicating countless hours to cultivating the best in thought and literature so that he could share this exalted thinking with his students and those he gave recitals for, after he attempted to put into his own poetry that which was ennobling, elevating, profoundly spiritual, liberating his mind from elements that cramp, that narrow, that poison the fountains of free and evolving living- because of all of these things, his life emerges to me as almost ideal."
