Opis: Cursory Family Sketches (Classic Reprint) - Garnett S. Ann

Excerpt from Cursory Family Sketches
Among these, were the subjects of this cursory Family Sketch, written with the view of rescuing virtues from the oblivion of the tomb, for the benefit of the living, who, by emulating may give them immortality. It is a simple record of truth, and this is its only merit. As tradition has perpetuated no pomp of titled rank, or family escutcheons, bearing boasted emblems, it is to be supposed none graced this name. Such honors are apt to be remembered, while few have the moral courage to own, however true, that
"My ancient but ignoble blood,
Has crept thro' scoundrels ever since the flood."
As to the intrinsic value of rank and titles, a man's grandfather had as well be a peasant as a prince; a cobbler as a king; since the source of honor, or of degradation lies within his own bosom, and the power of distinction within himself. The question is not, who his grand-sire was, but, who he is.
