Athena, Mighty Olympian and Guardian of Historia!
Grant us the ability to glimpse into the realm of ethereal wisdom and retrieve the sceptre of divine truth to rule over the imperial shrine of the spiritus!
~The Ancient Librarian
The student has his Rome, his Florence, his whole glowing Italy, within the four walls of his library. He has in his books the ruins of an antique world and the glories of a modern one.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
