1843 - 1933
Henry Norman was born in Concordville, Pennsylvania, in 1843, penned his convictions during the late 19th century. His words still bring truth and enlightenment to out world today, as he poignantly describes his thoughts on race, religion, politics, an the relationships between man and woman, and the woman and child. Printed here, together for the first time, are his two books, Thoughts I Met On the Highway and Real. Thoughts I Met On the Highway was entered into the Library of Congress in 1888, and Real was published in 1897. Though the words are over a century old, they are words for our time -- anytime.
Henry Norman lived in Lynn, Massachusetts and was in the famous Company F of the 54th regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. He served through seven battles of the Civil War and mustered out of the Union Army as a sergeant in 1865.
He had a long and remarkable life that few are
aware of. His contributions to our society as an author, though not as yet
well known, are great. Visit www.henrynorman.com

"In offering this book
to the public, all I wish is that I have written the thoughts it contains just
as they came into my own soul. They have been a blessing to me, and I send
them forth, hoping they will do good to others."
~ Henry Norman
Excerpts from An Anthology of Works, by Henry Norman
"You can whip anything out of your child but badness, or whip anything into it but goodness."
"Which is worth most, an arm or character? The reason I ask is because I notice that when a man falls and breaks his arm, everybody seems to pity him; but when he breaks his character, he seems to have few friends, but plenty of enemies."
"I have looked from every standpoint, and have failed to see wherein that man differs from a brute who has no higher object in life than bodily comfort."
