Texte du rabat

Excerpt from The Nations Around Men and women, and lets us know their thoughts on the deepest subjects - their joys and sorrows, their struggles and temptations, in the most momentous and in the most ordinary events of their lives - the other continually disappoints by bringing before us long lists of names indeed, and minute particulars of the outward forms of living, but no one life that we can really enter into, scarcely one name that at all vividly represents a person to us. The prosaic outward details of one history require contact with the other to make them attract and interest us. That contact brings life to them. When we hang the minute knowledge of ancient manners and customs, build ings and costumes, that may be learnt from Egyptian and Assyrian records, round the familiar heroes of Bible stories, like an ornamental frame round a beloved portrait, we discover, as we might not other wise have discovered, how much value and interest such knowledge has for us.
