Excerpt from The New Bond of Love
Of the dark ages, of Hindostan, China, Persia, and Egypt, our knowledge is limited; but of Jerusalem, Athens, and Rome, and the subsequent ages, faithful records are at our command, and will for ever cast their shadows of gloom and glory upon the present and the future.
Jerusalem, Athens, and Rome have perished, but the monuments of genius which they have bequeathed us 'are imperishable, and are we to blame if we endeavor to banish the recollections of their evil passions, in order to preserve unsullied our admiration for their virtues?
Their evil passions, however, left unfortunately world wide impressions.
