Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Is there a rarer being,
Is there a fairer sphere
Where the strong are not unseeing,
And the harvests are not sere;
Where, ere the seasons dwindle,
They yield their due return;
Where the lamps of knowledge kindle,
While the flames of youth still burn?
Stedman.—Beyond the Portals, Part VI.
