Excerpt from What I Think After Thinking
A verdict in one's favor is always pleasing, but try to inﬂuence one in advance, is presuming upon the weakness of public opinion.
The writer is fully aware, without being told, that this work is far from perfect. That four timesas many ideas might be expressed in one-fourth the space, but not knowing that even this would insure success, the public is invited to an early inspection to see whether farther effort would bring better re ward.
If more time and thought should be consumed, and then the end was failure it would only add to the size Of the disappointment.
