Sustenance, Solace, and Spiritual Food in Books

Let us think, rather, of the millions in this country who awake, arise, go to their labour, eat, drink, and sleep again, without ever a notion of the sustenance, the solace, the spiritual food of life laid up for them in books: of the free granaries to which they might help themselves with both hands and yet never diminish this store by a fraction. – Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, Studies in Literature, Volume III (Milton III)

A Peaceful Read by George Goodwin Kilburne, 1896
