A Quote by James Freeman Clarke on beauty, blessings, books, courage, eternity, faith, gifts, god, heaven, hope, idealism, life, pain, truth, and world

When I consider what some books have done for the world, and what they are doing, how they keep up our hope, awaken new courage and faith, soothe pain, give an ideal life those whose hours are cold and hard, bind together distant ages and foreign lands, create new worlds of beauty, bring down truth from heaven; I give eternal blessings for this gift, and thank God for books.

James Freeman Clarke (1810 - 1888)
