Excerpt from Glimpses of the Future: Suggestions as to the Drift of Things<br><br>Author. - I have no notion of being able to tell what the future has in store for us. The best we can do is to indi cate the drift of things. Possibilities, and not certainties, are all we can hope for in speculating upon to-morrow and the day after. Unconsciously we do order our lives upon some theory of the future. We educate our children so they shall pursue a certain career either in business or in the professions. Every merchant and manufacturer buys goods or makes them, upon some theory as to their value when the time to dispose of them comes. Sagacity in business means a certain kind of prevision. It has seemed to me that this faculty of looking ahead has not been cultivated as it should have been, and this book has been written with a view to turning men's thoughts from dwelling so much on the past and pres ent, and inducing them to think out what is likely to occur hereafter.<br><br>Reader - But surely there can be no certainty in such speculations. The average man has not patience enough for such investigations, and the clever, ingenious, imagi native man would most certainly become the victim of his own theories and illusions. I cannot see any data which would make prophecy reasonable, and of course you do not claim inspiration.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
