Excerpt from Cheerful Yesterdays

Probably, if the truth were known, nothing in the universe is really insignificant, not even ourselves.

When I think of the vast changes which every man of my time has seen, of the men and women whom I have known, - those who created American literature and who freed millions of slaves, - men and women whom, as the worldly-wise Lord Houghton once wrote me, Europe has learned to honor, and would do well to imitate, then I feel that, whether I will or no, something worth chronicling may be included in the proposed chapters. For the rest, the autobiographer has the least reason of all writers to concern himself about the portrayal of his own personality. He is sure to reveal it, particularly if he tries to hide it. Confucius asked, How can a man be concealed? Of all methods, certainly not by writing his reminiscences. He can escape un observed, or else mislead observers, only by holding his tongue; let him Open his lips, and we have him as he is.
