Personal Memoirs and Recollections of Editorial Life, Vol. 1 of 2 free pdf Excerpt from Personal Memoirs and Recollections of Editorial Life, Vol. 1 of 2 It is a hard and a nice subject for a man to write of himself. It pains his own heart to say any thing of disparagement, and the reader's ears to hear any thing of praise from him. There is no danger from me of my offending him in that kind- neither my mind nor my body, nor my fortune, allow me any materials for that vanity. Cowley. Grateful, as I am, to the Gracious Being, without whom I and my faculties are nothing, I feel no disposition to affront his bounty by assuming the language of hypocritical humility. Venerating truth above all earthly things, I can think and speak of myself as well as of other men, without malice and without extenuation. I will never incur a real imputation of dissimulation and ingratitude, by adopting a silly affectation to avoid the mere appearance of conceit. Gilbert Wakefield. Nor Fame I slight, nor for her favors call.She comes unlooked for, if she comes at all: But if the purchase cost so dear a priceAs soothing Folly, or exalting Vice, -If pen and press must flatter lawless Sway, And follow still where Fortune leads the way, -Or, if no basis bear my rising nameBut the fallen ruins of another's fame, -Then, teach me, Heaven, to scorn the guilty bays-Drive from my breast that wretched lust of praise-Unblemished let me live, or die unknown-O grant me honest Fame, or grant me none!
