Title: Lessons in LifeA Series of Familiar EssaysAuthor: Timothy TitcombRelease Date: September, 2005 [EBook #8932][Yes, we are more than one year ahead of schedule][This file was first posted on August 26, 2003]Edition: 10Language: EnglishCharacter set encoding: ASCII*** START OF THE PROJECT EBOOK LESSONS IN LIFE***Produced by Distributed ProofreadersLESSONS IN LIFE.A SERIES OF FAMILIAR ESSAYS.BYTIMOTHY TITCOMB,AUTHOR OF "LETTERS TO THE YOUNG," "GOLD-FOIL,"ETC.PREFACE.
 
 
The quick and cordial reception which greeted the author's"Letters to the Young," and his more recent series of essaysentitled "Gold Foil," and the constant and substantialfriendshipwhich has been maintained by the public toward thoseproductions,must stand as his apology for this third venture in a kindredfield of effort. It should be—and probably is—unnecessary for the author to say that in this book, as in its predecessors, hehas aimed to be neither brilliant nor profound. He hasendeavored,simply, to treat in a familiar and attractive way a few of themore prominent questions which concern the life of everythoughtful man and woman. Indeed, he can hardly pretend tohavedone more than to organize, and put into form, the averagethinking of those who read his books—to place before thepeoplethe sum of their own choicer judgments—and he neither expects nor wishes for these essays higher praise than that whichaccords tothem the quality of common sense.SPRINGFIELD, MASS.,
