WHOSE GREAT ARCHÆOLOGICAL AND CLASSICAL
LEARNING, EVINCED IN HIS PATIENT INVESTIGATION AND
OF THE LIFE AND 'TIMES OF THE
HAS WON FOR HIM THE ADMIRATION OF ALL MEN,
IN FULL CONFIDENCE OF HIS SYMPATHY WITH ITS OBJECT,
AND IN HUMBLE RECOGNITION OF HIS KIND
ASSISTANCE IN ITS COMPILATION,
“But call it worship, call it what you will, is it riot a right glorious thing, and set of things, this that Shakspeare has brought us ? For myself, I feel that there is actually a kind of sacredness in the fact of such a man being sent into this earth. Is he not an eye to us all; a bleffed heaven-sent Bringer of Light ?” « He lasts for-ever with us; we cannot give-up our Shakspeare."
Thomas Carlyle, “ On Heroes,” pp. 103, 105.
Hearing you praised, I say—'tis so, 'tis true,
And to the most of praise add something more; But that is in my thought, whose love to you,
Though words come hindmost, holds his rank before. Then others for the breath of words respect Me for my dumb thoughts, speaking in effect.”
Shakespeare's Sonnet iXXXV.
