Excerpt from The Life and Character of Edwin Gilliam Booth: A Prominent Lawyer, Legislature and Philanthropist
Thomas DE quincey has said that memoirs are like analogies, and serve as pontoons to the reader. They are bridges over which we walk to thoughts, ideas, and discoveries high above the point of starting. They are mirrors, in which a man beholdeth his natural face in a glass, and thereby learns to pass from the world which now is to that which is to come. Thus we learn to hear the music of gentle and pious minds in all ages, and to use them as a glass by which we receive more light, in a wider field of vision, from the word of God.
