8039 Arthur James

AUTHOR:Arthur James, Earl of Balfour (1848–1930)
QUOTATION:  The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit and all his thoughts will perish.
