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


Wondrous and awful are thy silent halls,
O kingdom of the past!
There lie the by-gone ages in their palls,
Guarded by shadows vast.
Lowell.—To the Past.

The Past is utterly indifferent to its worshippers.
William Winter.—English Rambles, Part I. Chap. VII.
