Excerpt from A Discourse, Delivered Jan; 5, 1816: In the Brick Meeting House in Danvers, at the Interment of the Honorable Samuel HoltenCharacters distinguished by public usefulness and private virtues, are not only entitled to respect and esteem while actors upon the stage; but deserve to have their names transmitted with honour to posterity. This is equally a tribute of justice to the dead, and of benevolence to the living. The general eulogy in our text on true dignity and worth of character, expresses the genuine sentiment of nature, and meets the concurring voice of mankind in all ages. It was pronounced by king Solomon, the ancient oracle of wisdom, who, as a man, was a superior judge of the world and human nature; as a.good man, was upright and impartial in his judgment; as elevated in station, had special opportunity to know and distinguish characters; and as an inspired penman, wrote under an immediate divine influence. He did not lavish empty panegyric indiscriminately on great and splendid talents, on worldly wealth and magnificence, or on heroic achievements. Good qualities and worthy deeds were his object. Wisdom, virtue, and piety possess charms his noble soul was formed to feel, and knew how to appreciate. These attracted his attention, and secured his confidence.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
