Helen Keller
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart”
Helen Keller

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
