    For my own part I cannot be enthusiastic about politics, except on rare occasions when the issue is a very narrow one. One is, that the most powerful inducement to abstinence, in my case, was the interference of wine with liberty, and above all things its interference with what I really loved best, and the transference of desire from what was most desirable to what was sensual and base. I cannot help my conversion to another creed. I said I was in great perplexity.

    Many a man goes into his study, shuts himself up with his poetry or his psychology, comes out, half understanding what he has read, is miserable because he cannot find anybody with whom he can talk about it, and misses altogether the far more genuine joy which he could have obtained from a game with his children or listening to what his wife had to tell him about her neighbours. There were cards in the window with 'Lodgings' written on them, and father wanted to go in to ask the terms. How can I? He told me that he had come seven miles that morning to that spot because he knew that it was haunted by one particular species of butterfly which he wished to get; and as it was a still, bright day, he hoped to find a specimen. What enabled me to conquer, was not so much heroism as a susceptibility to nobler joys, and the difficulty which a man must encounter who is not susceptible to them must be enormous and almost insuperable. But every one who has walked in sadness because his destiny has not fitted his aspirations; every one who, having no opportunity to lift himself out of his little narrow town or village circle of acquaintances, has thirsted for something beyond what they could give him; everybody who, with nothing but a dull, daily round of mechanical routine before him, would welcome death, if it were martyrdom for a cause; every humblest creature, in the obscurity of great cities or remote hamlets, who silently does his or her duty without recognition--all these turn to Jesus, and find themselves in Him.

    Not a letter was opened unless it was clearly evident that it was not on business, and for opening these an apology was always offered that it was possible they might contain some announcement of sickness. I read it again this summer, amused by some of the comments I wrote back then in its margins. I suppose it is the very essence of passion, using the word in its literal sense, that no account can be given of it by the reason. So she brought a dust-pan and brush the little servant was out and patiently swept the floor. At first I thought I would consult Mardon, but I could not bring myself to go near him. I once did think there might be mine One friendship perfect and divine; Alas!

Autobiography of Mark Rutherford. book

However, existence like that which I had been leading was intolerable, and change it I must. And by and by the day broke. He never prayed without telling all of us that there was no health in him, and that his soul was a mass of putrefying sores; but everybody thought the better of him for his self-humiliation.

The one exception was the wife of the shopkeeper. When I got home I found that my supper, consisting of bread and cheese with a pint of beer, was on the table, but apparently it had been thought unnecessary to light the fire again at that time of night.

Passion does not dawdle and compliment, nor is it nasty, as this fellow was.

Mark Rutherford's Deliverance

The remembrance of this escape, and the certain knowledge that of all beings whom I knew I was most likely to be mistaken in an emergency, always produced in me a torturing tendency to inaction.

The atonement, and what it accomplished for man, were therefore a sublime summing up as it were of what sublime men have to do for their race; an exemplification, rather than a contradiction, of Nature herself, as we know her in our own experience.

He was no temple, but rather a comfortable, hospitable house open to all friends, well furnished autobiography of Mark Rutherford. book books and pictures, and free to every guest from garret to cellar.

It made me restless and anxious at the sight of every new face, wondering whether at last I had found that for which I searched as if for the kingdom of heaven.

My friend knew his subject from end to end, and I envied him his mastery of it. I could never call him a hypocrite. The reason for my virtue may have been a wrong reason, but, anyhow, I was saved, and being saved, much more was saved than health and peace of mind.

There were scattered lights here and there, marking roads, but as they crossed one another, and now and then stopped where building had ceased, the effect they produced was that of bewilderment with no clue to it. Supper was not served, as it was found to be too great an expense. One of the customs of the chapel was what were called Dorcas meetings.

Some of the gentlemen waited below in the dining-room, but most of them preferred the shop, for, although it was shut, the gas was burning to enable the assistants to put away the goods which had been got out during the day.

It generally began with a confession that we were all sinners, but no individual sins were ever confessed, and then ensued a kind of dialogue with God, very much resembling the speeches which in later years I have heard in the House of Commons from the movers and seconders of addresses to the Crown at the opening of Parliament.

About the Greek and Latin and the secular part of the college discipline I will say nothing, except that it was generally inefficient. The deacons thought they had a prospect of returning prosperity, and in the end I received a nearly unanimous invitation, which, after some hesitation, I accepted.

The third deacon was Mr. Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and He hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. Accordingly, I called on him.

These services were not interesting to me for their own sake. The roof was supported by three or four tall wooden pillars which ran from the ground to the ceiling, and the galleries by shorter pillars.The autobiography & deliverance of Mark Rutherford [pseud.] Item Preview deliverance of Mark Rutherford [pseud.] by White, William Hale, Publication date HTTP" link in the "View the book" box to the left to find XML files that contain more metadata about the original images and the derived formats (OCR results, PDF Pages: This book is available for free download in a number of formats - including epub, pdf, azw, mobi and more.
