• Those who compare the age in which their lot has fallen with a golden age which exists only in imagination, may talk of degeneracy and decay; but no man who is correctly informed as to the past, will be disposed to take a morose or desponding view of the present.

    "History of England" by Thomas B. Macaulay, Vol. I, (Ch. 1), 1849-1861.
