“In *mathematics* he was greater

Than Tycho Brahe, or Erra Pater:

For he, by geometric scale,

Could take the size of pots of ale;

Resolve, by sines and tangents straight,

If bread and butter wanted weight;

And wisely tell what hour o’ th’ day

The clock doth strike, by algebra.”

—Samuel Butler (1612–1680)

“The uppermost idea with Hellenism is to see things as they really are; the uppermost ideas with Hebraism is conduct and obedience. Nothing can do away with this ineffaceable difference. The *Greek* quarrel with the body and its desires is, that they hinder right thinking; the Hebrew quarrel with them is, that they hinder right acting.”

—Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

“The post-office had a great charm at one period of our lives. When you have lived to my age, you will begin to think *letters* are never worth going through the rain for.”

—Jane Austen (1775–1817)
