Klappentext

Excerpt from Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon as Statesman Historian and Chancellor of the University: A Lecture Delivered on February 18, 1909

Tercentenaries and similar celebrations of the births of great men are useful, though becoming somewhat hackneyed. We hear so much about the great men of the moment that we are in danger of ceasing to remember the greater men of the past. I do not mean that we are in danger of forgetting their names, but of forgetting what manner of men they were, and what they did to serve their own generation, and through it ours, and those to come. It is well, therefore, that at set times and seasons we should call to mind the things which are forgotten, and that our University should say to itself, as our colleges do, Let us now praise famous men and our fathers that begat us.'
