Richard de Bury

“In books I meet the dead as if they were alive
in books I see what is yet to come...
All things decay and pass in time...
All fame would fall into oblivion
if God had not given mortal men the book to aid them”


Richard de Bury, The Love of Books: The Philobiblon of Richard de Bury
