    Excerpt from Personal Recollections: From Early Life to Old Age, of Mary Somerville, With Selections From Her Correspondence

    Few thoughtful minds will read without emotion my mother's own account of the wonderful energy and in domitable perseverance by which, in her ardent thirst for knowledge, she overcame obstacles apparently insar mountable, at a time when women were well-nigh totally debarred from education and the almost intuitive way in which she entered upon studies of which she had scarcely heard the names, living, as she did, among persons to whom they were utterly unknown, and who disapproved of her devotion to pursuits so different from those of ordinary young girls at the end of the last century, especially in Scotland, which was far more old-fashioned and primitive than Englan d.

    Nor is her simple account of her early days without interest, when, as a lonely child, she wandered by the seashore, and on the links of Burntisland, collecting shells and ¿owers or spent the clear, cold nights at her window, watching the starlit heavens, whose mysteries she was destined one day to penetrate in all their pro found and sublime laws, making clear to others that knowledge which she herself had acquired, at the cost of so hard a struggle.
