Quote of the Day (John Bannister Tabb, on the Endurance of a Bridge)

“O, teach thy power to me,
Calm mid all storm to be,
  And evermore,
Over Time's restless tide,
World-weary feet to guide
  From shore to shore!”—American poet (and Roman Catholic priest) John Bannister Tabb (1845-1909), “The Bridge,” in Poems (1882); also featured in American Poetry: The Nineteenth Century, Vol. 2, edited by John Hollander (1993)

(I took the accompanying picture of the Brooklyn Bridge more than two years ago.)
