Quote of the Day (William Wordsworth, on ‘So Sweet a Resting-Place’)

“This is the spot:—how mildly does the sun
Shine in between the fading leaves! the air
In the habitual silence of this wood
 Is more than silent: and this bed of heath,
Where shall we find so sweet a resting-place?—William Wordsworth, “Travelling,” in The Major Works (Including The Prelude), edited by Stephen Gill (1984)
