Day 17: “Happy is the man. . . “

“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom. and getteth understanding. She is more precious than rubies, and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.”

–a reading from the book of Proverbs,given at the funeral of Charles Darwin in Westminster Abbey, April 19th, 1882
