The printed page never flinches,
never shows cowardice
It is never tempted to compromise.
It never tires,
never grows disheartened.
It travels cheaply, and requires no hired hall.
It works while we sleep.
It never loses it's temper.
It works long after we are dead.
The printed page is a visitor which gets inside the home, and stays there.
It always catches a man in the right mood,
for it speaks to him only when he is reading it.
