Excerpt from William Lloyd Garrison, 1805-1879, Vol. 1: The Story of His Life

The truth is, he who commences any reform which at last becomes one of transcendent importance and is crowned with victory, is always ill-judged and unfairly estimated. At the outset he is looked upon with contempt, and treated in the most approbrious manner, as a wild fanatic or a dangerous disorganizer. In due time the cause grows and advances to its sure triumph; and in proportion as it nears the goal, the popular estimate of his character changes, till finally excessive panegyric is substituted of outrageous abuse. The praise, on the one hand, and the defamation on the other, are equally unmerited. In the clear light of Reason, it will be seen that he simply stood up to discharge a duty which he owed to his God, to his fellow-men, to the land of his nativity.

It appears to us a self-evident truth, that, whatever the gospel of designed to destroy at any period of the world, being contrary to it, ought Now to be abandoned.

In short, I did what I could for the redemption of the human race.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from William Lloyd Garrison, 1805-1879, Vol. 1: The Story of His Life Writing not without bias, surely, but in a spirit emulous of the absolute fairness which distinguished our father, we have done little more than coordinate materials to serve posterity in forming that judgment of him which we have no desire to forestall. In a literary point of view, we have aimed at nothing more than clearness, sequence, and proportion. The force of this narrative is cumulative, in a high degree. N o one - let the observation seem ever so na if who does not read it consecutively, and (from the pains we have been at to avoid repetition) closely, will arrive at a just conception of the man, the cause, or the times. Many threads, of course, lead nowhere. Individual careers are not followed out to the end, whether more or less intimately connected with Mr. Gar rison s. The threads of his development, on the other hand, are kept together as sedulously as in a novel. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
