Thomas Carlyle Quote: “Thought once awakened does not again…”

Thought once awakened does not again slumber; unfolds itself into a System of Thought; grows, in man after man, generation after generation, – till its full stature is reached, and such System of Thought can grow no farther, but must give place to another.

Thomas Carlyle
