Labores de Eternidad


Ancient Egypt was doubly fortunate and doubtless owed to this its fabled wealth, in that it posessed two activities, namely pyramid-building and the search or the precious metals, the fruits of which, since they could not serve the needs of man by being consumed, did not stale with abundance. The Middle Ages built cathedrals and sang dirges. Two pyramids, two masses for the dead are twice as good as one; but not so two railways from London to York.
