Excerpt from Life of Rev. James Richardson: A Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Canada

When one, that leaves any impress on society at all, has died, we know him better than while he was living. We view his actions and judge his motives with less bias: we set a fairer estimate upon his character; and with a calmer eye, in a clearer light, we perceive the ruling principles of his conduct and the results of his labors. If the will and the way have been evil, the general tendency of our nature - bad as it is sometimes said to be - is not to set down aught in malice, but to search out an excuse. And if they have been right, it is a pleasure to the mind to recall them, and a strength to virtue and a joy to the heart to hold them in remembrance.

Because these things are so, the review of the life of a good man can never cease to be both a benefit and a pleasure.
