A Pity

Basil Lanneau Gildersleeve, "Brief Mention," American Journal of Philology 23.1 (1902) 106-112 (at 107):
It is a pity that classical scholars do not take an occasional run outside of their own palings. It would strengthen their muscles indefinitely.
Id. (at 108):
The noun is a verb at rest. The verb is a noun in motion. Quicken the noun, you have a verb. Freeze a verb, you have a noun.
