Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Puritan: A Series of Essays, Critical, Moral, and Miscellaneous In these volumes, I have attempted a difficult task; and if I shall be pronounced to have failed, I shall neither be grieved nor surprised. I have attempted to remember, in every page, that I am an American; and to Write to the wants and manners of just such a people as those among whom I was born. I have always blamed our authors, for forgetting the woods, the vales, the hills and streams, the manners and minds, among which their earliest impressions were received, and their first and most innocent hours were passed. A sprig of White weed, raised in our own soil, should be more Sweet than the marjoram of Idalian bowers; and the screaking of the night-hawk s Wings, as he stoops in our evening sky, should make better melody in our ears than the softest warblings of a foreign nightingale. If I have sometimes verged to too much homeliness and simplicity, my only apology is, in the language of Scripture - I dwell among mine own people.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Puritan, Vol. 2: A Series of Essays, Critical, Moral, and Miscellaneous I Have illustrated the vagueness of general terms, (out of which general principles must be formed, ) in instances brought from material objects; because such exemplifications are most clear and convincing. But the remark is stronger when applied to intellectuals. Of these, the most specific parts are more dark than of tangible substances; and of course general terms must increase the obscurity. Indeed, says one of the greatest metaphysicians of our own country, there is a vast indistinctness, and unfixedness in most, or at least very many of the terms used to ex press things pertaining to moral and spiritual matters. Whence arise innumerable mistakes, strong prejudices, inextricable confusion, and endless controversy! About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
