Quotation of the Week

“When you sell a man a book, you don’t sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue
—you sell him a whole new life.
Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night
—there’s all heaven and earth in a book

—Christopher Morley, Parnassus on Wheels

= Available at Sembach Library
