Excerpt from American Men of Mind
It was the work of the principal laborers on this mighty edifice which we attempted to judge in Men of Action, and this was a comparatively easy task, because the work stands out concretely for all to see, and, as far as essentials go, at least, we are all agreed as to what is good work and what is bad. But the task which is attempted in the present volume is a much more difficult one, for here we are called upon to judge not deeds but thoughts - thoughts, that is, as translated into a novel, or a poem, or a statue, or a painting, or a theory of the universe.
