Shadows
 
The very shadows seem to listen.
        Anna Katharine Green.—The Leavenworth Case, Chap. XII.
  1
We are but shadows: we are not endowed with real life, and all that seems most real about us is but the thinnest substance of a dream,—till the heart be touched. That touch creates us—then we begin to be—thereby we are beings of reality and inheritors of eternity.
        Hawthorne.—American Note-Books. Salem, Oct. 4, 1840. Union Street. [Family mansion.]
