Excerpt from the Preface: My publisher has written me that the old type of this book of the Reveries are so far worn and battered, that they will bear no further usage; and, in view of a new edition, he asks for such revision of the text as I may deem judicious, and for a few lines in way of preface. I began the revision. I scored out word after word; presently I came to the scoring out of paragraphs; and before I had done, I was making my scores by the page. It would never do. It might be the better, but it would not be the same. I cannot lop away those twelve swift, changeful years that are gone. Middle age does not look on life like youth; we can�not make it. And why mix the years and the thoughts? Let the young carry their own burdens, and banner; and we-ours. I have determined not to touch the book. A race has grown up which may welcome its youngness, and find a spirit or a sentiment in it that cleaves to them, and cheers them, and is true. I hope they will.
