Excerpt from Struggles for Life: Or the Autobiography of a Dissenting Minister

Or memory may recall, after the lapse of twenty or thirty years of youth and early manhood that invaluable period of being in which, if a man is to do anything in this tumultuous market-place called the world, it must be done, or left undone for ever - scenes of strangely mingled com plexion, having all the colours of the rainbow, without its unity and beauty, and all the variety of a Persian bazaar, without its order and elegance. Alternations of hope and disappointment, satisfaction and grief, gladness and tears.
