Description

Excerpt from Helps to Happiness The advantages of book education have been presented by an eminent writer in these im pressive words: Of all the blessings which it has pleased Providence to allow us to cultivate, there is not one which breathes a purer fragrance or bears a more heavenly aspect than education. It is a companion which no misfortune can de press, no crime' destroy, no enemy alienate, no despotism enslave; at home a friend, abroad an introduction; in solitude a solace, in society an ornament; it chastens vice; it guides virtue; it gives at once a grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage, vacillating between the dig nity of an intelligence derived from God and the degradation of passions participated with brutes. While good books are a great help to happi ness, bad literature is as great an influence in the opposite direction. One of the greatest evils of this age is the reading of sensational novels and demoralizing literature. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
