It was a day absolutely broken off from all that had gone before it.

To say that it brought a sense of utter novelty, is nothing- the transformation seemed as perfect as if, by some suddenly revealed process, one had learned to swim in air, and were striking out for some new planet. The past was annihilated, the future was all.

Now that dimly-visioned future has itself become a portion of the past- that new cycle of existence is ended- already its memories grow dim- and, after all that seeming metamorphosis, the survivors still find themselves with their feet upon the familiar earth, and pursue once more the quiet paths they left. The aureole is vanished from their lives, but it still lingers round the heads of the fallen. No time, no change, can restore them to the old ways, or take them from the enchanted sphere in which they hence forth dwell.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
