A Quote by Sir Henry Wotton on books, music, and people

You meaner beauties of the night, That poorly satisfy our eyes More by your number than your light; You common people of the skies, What are you when the sun shall rise? This was printed with music as early as 1624, in East's Sixth Set of Books, and is found in many manuscripts.

Sir Henry Wotton (1568 - 1639)
