But no sooner is the able man disabled by death, than any number of Biographers will abuse the poor world for letting him slip through their fingers.Well, well, neighbour, I am thinking it would require some pluck to print thy virtues and sign my name.

Yet, peradventure, and we were both honest, a man might dare even this. - Old Novel.Here is an earnest, truth-speaking man- no theorizer, sentimentalizer, but a practical man of work and endeavour, man of sufferance and endurance. The thing that be speaks is not a hearsay, but a thing that he has himself known, and by experience become assured of. His grand excellency is this, that he is genuine. As his primary faculty, the foundation of all others, is Intellect, depth and force of Vision- so his primary virtue is Justice, the Courage to be just.

He lives, as he counsels and commands, not commodiously in the Reputable, the Plausible, the Half, but resolutely in the Whole, the Good, the True. - Thomas Carlyle.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
