Excerpt from The Ideal Man: A Conversation Between Two Friends, Upon the Beautiful, the Good, and the True, as Manifested in Actual Life
Reader, have you ever been delighted with the contemplation of a landscape, and felt your soul connected by a mysterious link with na ture around you? Have the sympathies of your heart ever been. So entwined with those of a hero, as to feel that his noble sentiments and deeds were yours also? Have you felt your soul expand on your discovery of some truth? If you have experienced _all this, and more, I need not plead before you the claims of the beautiful, the good, and the true, which I have endeavored here to twine into one thread of life in the ideal man.
