9781331338727: The Life and Correspondence of Andrew Combe, M.D: Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh; One of the Physicians in Ordinary, in ... and Royal Society of Physicians in Vienna

Excerpt from The Life and Correspondence of Andrew Combe, M.D: Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh; One of the Physicians in Ordinary, in Scotland, to the Queen; And Corresponding Member of the Imperial and Royal Society of Physicians in Vienna

Seldom is the biography of a man of letters or of science distinguished by many personal adventures and stirring incidents. These, while they captivate the attention of the crowd, do not furnish materials for abiding instruction, nor the best models for imitation. What it most concerns us to know is the home life, the daily labors, and the character of him who has devoted himself to the improvement of his fellow-men, as a teacher with his pen and tongue, and, if happily it may be also as an exemplar, in his own person, of the truth of the precepts which he inculcates.

The lesson is made more instructive, if there be revealed to us the struggles which the subject of the biography had to make against the depressing influence of poverty or of disease. Successful progress in the high-road of general or of professional literature is, under such circumstances, true heroism, and entitles him to admiration and respect in a higher degree than are so readily conceded to the successful soldier, and to the daring adventurer into unknown regions.
