Allan Bloom
“The failure to read good books both enfeebles the vision and strengthens our most fatal tendency -- the belief that the here and now is all there is.”
Allan Bloom, The Closing of the American Mind

Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

Emily Dickinson
“There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away,
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears a Human soul.”
Emily Dickinson
