Description

Excerpt from The Pleasures of Life, Vol. 1 Those who have the pleasure of attending the opening meetings of schools and colleges, and of giving away prizes and certificates, are generally expected at the same time to offer such words of counsel as the experience of the world might enable them to give to those who are entering life. Being myself naturally rather prone to suffer from low Spirits, I have at several of these gatherings taken the opportunity of dwelling on the privileges and blessings we enjoy, and I reprint here the substance of some of these addresses (omitting what was special to the circumstances of each case, and freely making any alterations and additions which have since occurred to me), hoping that the thoughts and quotations in which I have myself found most comfort may perhaps be of use to others also. It is hardly necessary to say that I have not by any means referred to all the sources of happiness open to us, some indeed of the great est pleasures and blessings being altogether omitted. In reading over the proofs I feel that I may appear in some cases too dogmatic, but I hope that allowance will be made for the circum stances under which they were delivered.
