James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
William Smith

  Language is the memory of the human race. It is a thread of nerve of life running through all the ages, connecting them into one common, prolonged, and advancing existence.  2
  We have raised Pain and Sorrow into heaven, and in our temples, on our altars. Grief stands symbol of our faith, and it shall last as long as man is mortal and unhappy.  3
