Since this book was first published in 1934 some of the authors quoted have become more familiar (notably Aubrey and Pepys) and some less, by the general neglect of 17th century English literature. Nevertheless many maintain their pungency, as for example the lines by Sir William Temple in the section "Parental"; "None could answer the naked Indian, Why one Man should take Pains, and run Hazards by Sea and Land all his Life, that his Children might be safe and lazy all theirs."
