Quote of the Week

“When from our better selves we have too long
Been parted by the hurrying world, and droop,
Sick of its business, of its pleasures tired,
How gracious, how benign, is Solitude.”

William Wordsworth [1770-1850]

From, Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations by John Bartlett.
Published by Little, Brown and Company. 1955. Page 404.
