Quotations
It seemed manifest, Carlyle told Milnes, that the thing was extensively taking root. "If we could *heat* it by one good burst of sun-splendour, or artificial furnace *flash*-splendour, it would germinate straightaway and fill all Cockneydom with its boughs and leaves!" The London Library had become the Tree Igdrasil, the life force.
