From The Portable Charles Lamb: Essays and Letters, edited by John Mason Brown
"I begin to count the probabilities of my duration, and to grudge at the expenditure of moments and shortest periods, like miser’s farthings. In proportion as the years both lessen and shorten, I set more count upon their periods, and would fain lay my ineffectual finger upon the spoke of the great wheel."
From New Year's Eve
