“I love everything that’s old, old friends, old times, old houses, old manners, old gardens, old books, old wine. I hope to spread that love to others— Hope is such a bait, it covers any hook. Like the gleaming taper’s light, adorns and cheers our way; and still, as darker grows the night, emits a brighter ray.”

– Oliver Goldsmith
