    The complete sentence is:

    I should let my eyes rest, too, on the face of a baby, so that I could catch a vision of the eager, innocent beauty which precedes the individual’s consciousness of the conflicts which life develops. -

    Do you realize that the entire sentence makes a difference?

    Do you see that she wishes to be able to look at the beauty of a baby's face? That she describes this beauty as "eager" and "innocent"?
