Isaac Watts Quote
“Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.”
Psalm 90 st. 5.
“Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.”

Quote of the day
“Sound is naught but broken air, And every speech that is spoken, Loud or privily, foul or fair, In its substance is but air; For as flame is but lighted smoke, So sound is air that is broken.”
