Excerpt from An Address, Delivered Before the Association of Teachers: And Friends of Popular Education, at Exeter, Dec; 28, 1836
Different ages have been characterised by different features. At one time, literature and science have flourished - commerce has been extended - and the arts of civilized life have been cultivated. At another, the love of military achievements has held the public mind captive - the desire of conquest and of empire has had the ascendency -and the arts of husbandry and peace have been neglected and forgotten. At one time, the path of the orator and poet has been strewn with flowers by an admiring populace - at another the return of the warrior from conquered provinces has been honored with triumphal arches.
At one time, too, a long night of darkness set in upon the world, and the light of learning and science glimmered only in the convent and the cloister -then, long after the power of Roman arms had ceased, Roman literature again revived. Her collected learning that had been scattered, at the time of her subjugation, through the north of Europe, and nearly extinguished, was now again rekindled and spread like wild-fire throughout the continent.
