    But the hardships and responsibilities by no means end with the building of the Light-house; the keeper who has it in charge holds a most important position, for upon the skill of his hands in the management of the delicate costly lenses and machinery, the clearness of his head, and the courage of his heart, as well as his honesty and fidelity, depends, even more than upon the captain of a vessel, the safety of many precious lives and millions of property; so it is  of the first importance that he be intelligent, efficient and trustworthy.

    - Anon, ‘Something about Light-Houses’ in Illustrated Science for Boys and Girls (1881) [full text]
