I am disposed to say grace upon twenty other occasions in the course of the day besides my dinner. I want a form for setting out upon a pleasant walk, for a moonlight ramble, for a friendly meeting or a solved problem. Why have we none for
books, those spiritual repasts--a grace before Milton, a devotional exercise proper to be said before reading Spenser?
... Charles Lamb (1775-1834)
