Excerpt from The Flowers of History, Vol. 1 of 2: Especially Such as Relate to the Affairs of Britain; From the Beginning of the World to the Year 1907

But what are we to say in reply to certain dull auditors, who, in a spirit of detraction, say, What occasion is there to commit to writing the lives and deaths of men, and different events which happen to mankind Why perpetuate by written records the recollection of prodigies in heaven and earth, or those which affect the other elements? Let them know that the good lives and virtuous manners of men of old time, are recorded to serve as patterns for the imitation of subsequent ages; and that the examples of the wicked are set forth, not that they may be imitated, but that they may be shunned.
