Excerpt from A Look Upward The rich man as well as the pauper is the victim of bodily infirmity. He accepts it as a matter of course, he makes every concession to it, is alert with expectancy for its first approach, and nurses its advance with devoted attention and assiduity. The godly are no more exempt from suffering than the erring and vicious. The innocent babe is branded before its birth with this primeval curse; he is mortgaged by his parent's fears to every form of physical malady which race-belief has ever sanc tioned, and to the new ones which medical science may hereafter invent. And yet these sufferers are not serfs, but the children Of a King, heirs apparent to omnipotent power. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
