Description
Excerpt: If my object in these pages were to present a complete scheme of counsels and maxims for the guidance of life, I should have to repeat the numerous rules?some of them excellent?which have been drawn up by thinkers of all ages, from Theognis and Solomon[1] down to La Rochefoucauld; and, in so doing, I should inevitably entail upon the reader a vast amount of well?worn commonplace. But the fact is that in this work I make still less claim to exhaust my subject than in any other of my writings.
