A Quote by Edwin Percy Whipple on books, light, sea, and time

Books, - lighthouses erected in the great sea of time, - books, the precious depositories of the thoughts and creations of genius, - books, by whose sorcery times past become time present, and the whole pageantry of the world's history moves in solemn procession before our eyes; - these were to visit the firesides of the humble, and lavish the treasures of the intellect upon the poor.
