It is a temple where happiness often yields to despair and smiles of joy are changed to tears of grief. We see there every phase of human society, every attribute of human life, every form of human character. There are bosoms where gleam fierce flames of vice and crime and bosoms fragrant with violet vales of truth where the goddess Virtue sits enthroned. We see eyes wet with tears of penitence, hear piteous sobs of regret and words of pardon soft and sweet. We hear savage cries for vengeance there, and see wrapped with precious robes of purity hearts that lovingly forgive. There lurk the demons of revenge with dripping sword in hand, while hovering near may be ever seen divine angels of mercy and justice. Beyond the gathering clouds of gloom is seen the trembling star of hope. There are hearts upon which fall the shadows of night and hearts crowned with the splendors of imperial day. We see dreadful pictures drawn and painted upon scarlet brows of shame, and we see the throne of honor there and the scepter held by lofty manhoods king.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
