Description

Quoted from the author's "Preface."

"I have just completed the 65th year of my life. The pulse seems to beat as merrily as ever, the pen does not move less steadily over the white page, but the fact confronts me in inexorable print that approach the age of reminiscence, anecdotage, wisdom, and othe r
symptoms of waning strength.

I am almost tempted for once to question the printed page, but in fact my memory does offer me a picture of five decades of a crowded and quaintly varied life since I quitted primary school. It has been at least so satisfying that if Mephistopheles were to propose to set me back at the age of 15, my feet again fresh for the paths of adventure, I should, I think, decline to drink the magic brew, even if there were no horrid price to pay.

So it occurs to me that I might find something useful to say to younger folk about the art of living. But, pray, do not imagine that this little work has the conceit of a personal record of success. You remember how the schoolboy defined what the theologian calls sins of omission. "They are," he said, "those sins which we might have committed and did not." Much of the counsel I give here is that which I might have followed and did not. It is the privilege of the moralist to replace experience with imagination."
