The wheels of nature are not meant to roll backward; everything presses on toward Eternity—from the birth of Time, an impetuous current has set in which bears all the sons of men toward that interminable ocean.

About Thomas Carlyle

Thomas Carlyle

Thomas Carlyle

Thomas Carlyle (December 4, 1795 - February 5, 1881) was a Scottish essayist, satirist, and historian, whose work was hugely influential during the Victorian era. Coming from a strict Calvinist family, Carlyle was expected by his parents to become a preacher. However, while at the University of Edinburgh, he lost his Christian faith; nevertheless, Calvinist values remained with him throughout his life. This combination of a religious temperament with loss of faith in traditional Christianity made Carlyle's work appealing to many Victorians who were grappling with scientific and political changes that threatened the traditional social order.
