About meI read in a rather serendipitous fashion, preferring non-fiction over fiction.

"Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere." Jean Rhys

"Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence."
Erich Fromm - The Art of Loving.

"Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it."
André Gide.

About my library"When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes." - Erasmus

Reminiscences of Henry Crabb Robinson, Jan. 10, 1824:
"I looked over (Charles) Lamb's library in part. He has the finest collection of shabby books I ever saw; such a number of first-rate works in very bad condition is, I think, nowhere to be found."

"Intellectual Freedom is the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction. It provides for free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored. Intellectual freedom encompasses the freedom to hold, receive and disseminate ideas." - Intellectual Freedom and Censorship Q & A

(I no naka no kawazu taikai wo shirazu)

Literally: A frog in a well does not know the great sea.
Meaning: People are satisfied to judge things by their own narrow experience, never knowing of the wide world outside.
