What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

A Quote
October 27, 2003 — 8:40 pm

Thinking of space and colonization (as well as enjoying a second reading of L. Neil Smith’s Pallas) made me remember a particular quote I saw etched on an arch in the Library of Congress a couple of years ago.

Too low they build, who build beneath the stars

None of the quotes inscribed on the walls and ceilings of the Library of Congress are attributed. The original intent was for the patron to investigate any given missive, further enriching his knowledge in the process. I was so impressed by this particular quote that I wrote it down to research later. After a quick search of the Web, I found the saying belonged to a Mr. Edward Young (1683-1765).
