Peter Ilsted Art
Few and precious are the words which
the lips of Wisdom utter:
To what shall their rarity be likened?
What prices shall count their worth?
Perfect, and much to be desired, and giving joy with riches,
No lovely thing on earth can picture their fair beauty.
They be chance pearls, flung among the rocks by the sullen waters of Oblivion.
MARTIN FARQUHAR TUPPER, Proverbial Philosophy
