Friday Quote: On the Home Library

"The library is a room that contains human wisdom. Call it a room that reflects our relationship with knowledge. Because knowledge is like anything else--when you love it, you want to do something for it. Sometimes you want to build it a beautiful room, which is exactly what the English did, with steadfast elegance, for centuries."

Knowledge is the home of the soul. I often think that books are better friends than most people. Or, conversely, maybe I should associate with a better class of people?

People? Associate with people? Why?

(Sorry. Couldn't resist. I agree entirely. About the books, that is. And the knowledge.)
