Daily Dose

From The Humor of Homer and Other Essays, by Samuel Butler


"When a thing is old, broken, and useless we throw it on the dust-heap, but when it is sufficiently old, sufficiently broken, and sufficiently useless we give money for it, put it into a museum, and read papers over it which peopleb come long distances to hear."

From The Aunt, the Nieces, and the Dog
