British Unitarian minister and writer 1809-18820
The silent influence of books, is a mighty power in the world; and there is a joy in reading them known only to those who read them with desire and enthusiasm. Silent, passive, and noiseless though they be, they yet set in action countless multitudes, and change the order of nations.
Roman poet 43 BC - 17 AD0
Time glides away and as we get older through the noiseless years; the days flee and are restrained by no reign.
