A Quote by Ivor Thomas on art, departure, giving, glory, mind, and wisdom

If thou art able, O stranger, to find out all these things and gather them together in your mind, giving all the relations, thou shalt depart crowned with glory and knowing that thou hast been adjudged perfect in this species of wisdom.
