“A library should be like a pair of open arms.”
Roger Rosenblatt

“Why do we write?
"To make suffering endurable
To make evil intelligible
To make justice desirable
and . . . to make love possible”
Roger Rosenblatt, Unless It Moves the Human Heart: The Craft and Art of Writing

“There may be no more pleasing picture in the world than that of a child peering into a book - the past and the future entrancing each other.”
Roger Rosenblatt
