Charles Mackay Quote

Blessings on Science! When the earth seem'd old, When Faith grew doting, and the Reason cold, 'T was she discover'd that the world was young, And taught a language to its lisping tongue: 'T was she disclosed a future to its view, And made old knowledge pale before the new.


Voices from the Mountains and from the Crowd, Railways, Ticknor, Reed & Fields. 1853
