A Quote by Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay on darkness, failure, immortality, influence, literature, pain, sleep, sorrow, and tears
Wherever literature consoles sorrow or assuages pain; wherever it brings gladness to eyes which fail with wakefulness and tears, and ache for the dark house and the long sleep,-there is exhibited in its noblest form the immortal influence of Athens.
