This World of Ours free pdf Excerpt from This World of Ours I have only one life: then I am liable to be a long time dead. But before I die there is this beautiful World to see. If Francis Bacon could take all knowledge for his province, why mightn't I, a boy, try to take this Round World of Ours for mine?... And I did. I dedicated myself to travel. I travelled so far, so wide, that perhaps no one has caught me up. But the quality of my wanderings - which only I can judge of - that is a different thing. It is so easy to travel to-day - mostwheres- and I have travelled too easily. As I lay in bed once, computing my achievements, a voice cried in the dark - "You miserable Cook's tourist! What do you imagine you've done? Remember the French jeweller, Tavernier, setting out those centuries ago! And Marco Polo, reaching China in the Middle Ages! Think, too, with your wagons-lits and your thermos flasks of Thomas Coryat, walking from Jerusalem to Ajmere at a cost of fifty shillings! Go to sleep." I did. Yet, however humbled my pride, I have seen the Face of the Earth. I am getting far, far more than my share out of life- what can I give the World, for all the World is giving me?
