Book Quote of the Day: The Mayor of Casterbridge

 

In regards to ancient cultures: 

 They had lived so long ago, their time was so unlike the present, their hopes and motives were so widely removed from ours, that between them and the living there seemed to stretch a gulf too wide for even a spirit to pass. 

The Mayor of Casterbridge, 1886
