“We don’t want to feel less when we have finished a book; we want to feel that new possibilities of being have been opened to us. We don’t want to close a book with a sense that life is totally unfair and that there is no light in the darkness; we want to feel that we have been given illumination.”
Madeleine L'Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero
