About me"..the real message Bram Stoker sought to convey in "Dracula" is that a human being needs to live hundreds and hundreds of years to get all his reading done; that Count Dracula, basically nothing more than a misunderstood bookworm, was draining blood from the necks of 10,000 hapless virgins not because he was the apotheosis of pure evil but because it was the only way he could live long enough to polish off his extensive reading list."
Joe Queenan

"Die Gewalt einer Sprache ist nicht,
dass sie das Fremde abweist,
sondern dass sie es verschlingt."
--Goethe

"Books entered my house under cover of night, from the four winds, smuggled in by woodland creatures, and then they never left. Books collected on every surface; I believe that somehow they managed to breed." --Luc Sante

"Books waiting to be read, as tempting as grapes unharvested and musky. One's collection comes to symbolize the contents of one's mind, reminders of moments, of stages in a pilgrimage." --John Updike

"Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas." -- Alfred Whitney Griswold

"Only those things the heart believes are true." --Vincent J. Starrett

" Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body will also rest secure." --Psalm 16:9

About my library"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance."
---- A. E. Newton
