They tried to go beyond all other peoples in the grandeur of their buildings and their sculptures, and the work of their hands is so vast and solid that it will stand to be gazed at with admiration for ages to come.

They knew how to cut huge blocks of stone from their quarries, to chisel them into great slabs for buildings, or round them into mighty pillars, or carve them into vast statues. Then these were drawn hundreds of miles from the quarries and lifted into their places by the labor of hundreds of thousands of men. The proud old kings were cruel. They did not care if hosts of people perished in this terrible labor, if only they could build something that would excite the wonder of the world for ages to come.About the author:Charles Morris (1833-1922) was the author of numerous books for young and old, including “The Lives of the Presidents and How They Reached the White House,” “Tales from the Dramatists,” and “Primary History of the United States.”
