A Quote by Charles Lamb on people, rest, and time

A Quote by Charles Lamb on doubt, fear, and heaven

Thus, when the lamp that lighted The traveller at first goes out, He feels awhile benighted, And looks around in fear and doubt. But soon, the prospect clearing, By cloudless starlight on he treads, And thinks no lamp so cheering As that light which Heaven sheds.
