The privilege of pain by Caroline Kane Mills Everett ( - 1921).


All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-privilege-of-pain-by-caroline-kane-mills-everett/

We have seen that as mankind rises in the scale of civilization the body becomes increasingly less important. Nevertheless, I wish it to be clearly understood, that I do not maintain that it is preferable to be ill than well, but only that each state has its own peculiar privileges, which are rarely interchangeable.

Health and sickness are merely different roads to achievement. The earth requires rain as well as sunshine; we need both tears and laughter; navvies are necessary and so are philosophers.
The book details how people from many professions who had some or other physical disability or pain reached their goals. The introduction is by Kate Douglas Wiggin.
( Stav Nisser and the conclusion of the book.)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/58685
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Stav -

This caught my eye when it first appeared at PG. May I have Chapter X, The Freedom of Ill-Health, when you get a Magic Window?

The author is Caroline Kane Mills Everett. I'll fix the author database entry, but the author name needs to be changed in the first post.

Window is up. All chapters are rather short, and I had to group some into sections. Hope it is not too confusing.
