About me"She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain." ~ Lousia May Alcott

"When I am dead, I hope it may be said, 'His sins were scarlet, but his books were read'." ~ Hilaire Belloc

About my library"Come and take choice of all my library, And so beguile thy sorrow." ~ William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus, Act 4, scene 1, lines 34 and 35, a speech of Titus’ to Lavinia after her mutilation.

Henry Nevinson once said of Yeats; 'You have only to shake him and all manner of beautiful things tumble out.' ~ that is how I think of my library.
