“Inspiration is universal. It over-swept with grandeur all the past ages, and is just as fresh now as in time’s earliest morning. Poets, as much as prophets, are illumined with a divine radiance. They think, they write and sing from the very depths of their being.” –James Martin Peebles (1822–1922)
