    Every ceremony or rite has a value if it is performed without alteration. A ceremony is a book in which a great deal is written. Anyone who understands can read it. One rite often contains more than a hundred books.

    In sorrow by thy bier we stand,
    Amid the awe that hushes all,
    And speak the anguish of a land
    That shook with horror at thy fall.
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
