    Oft, in the stilly night, Ere Slumber’s chain has bound me, Fond Memory brings the light Of other days around me.
    Thomas Moore (1779–1852)

    The sight of a planet through a telescope is worth all the course on astronomy; the shock of the electric spark in the elbow, outvalues all the theories; the taste of the nitrous oxide, the firing of an artificial volcano, are better than volumes of chemistry.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
