After all manner of professors have done their best for us, the place we are to get knowledge is books. The true university of these days is a collection of books.
One by one the sands are flowing
--Adelaide Ann Proctor
One by one the moments fall;
Some are coming, some are going,
Do not strive to grasp them all.
In ancient shadows and twilights
--A.E. (George William Russel)
Where childhood had strayed
The world's great sorrows were born
And heroes made.
