    We get no good
    By being ungenerous, even to a book,
    And calculating profits--so much help
    By so much reading. It is rather when
    We gloriously forget ourselves, and plunge
    Soul-forward, headlong, into a book's profound,
    Impassioned for its beauty, and salt of truth--
    'Tis then we get the right good from a book.

The Wise
(Minstrel or Sage,) out of their books are clay;
But in their books, as from read more

The Wise
(Minstrel or Sage,) out of their books are clay;
But in their books, as from their graves they rise.
Angels--that, side by side, upon our way,
Walk with and warn us!
