A Discourse on the Life and Character of Samuel Putnam, LL. D., A. A. S., Late Judge of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts : Delivered in the West Church (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Discourse on the Life and Character of Samuel Putnam, LL. D., A. A. S., Late Judge of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts: Delivered in the West Church The intention here is, I suppose, to express very strongly how good it is to remember a just man, to keep his image in mind after he has passed out of our sight; to intimate to us both how beautiful the spiritual likeness of such a one which is his memory - is in itself, and how it blesses those who give it place in the chambers of' their imagination. From our own experience, we can heartily echo the sentiment of the text. If it is pleasant and profitable even to look at the portrait of such a man on the canvas, or his features cut by the sculptor's chisel, there is a still greater delight in perusing the traits of his soul: for while the picture fades and the statue must crumble, as one of old said of his hero, the form of the mind is eternal.
