About me"Library Science is the key to all science, just as mathematics is its language--and civilization will rise or fall, depending on how well librarians do their jobs."
--Robert A. Heinlein

"Libraries are brothels for the mind. Which means that librarians are the madams, greeting punters, understanding their strange tastes and needs, and pimping their books."
--Guy Browning

"The medical librarian was born with a silver answer under his tongue. Verily, thou shalt not phaze him. He hath a liberal education and acquireth knowledge daily. He knoweth the names of readers and greeteth them. Sometimes he remembereth their middle initials. If a woman, she recalleth also their neckties and the color of their eyes."
--Bulletin of the Medical Library Journal, 1929 v.18, no.1-2, p.26

"Oh, no, don't be sorry. You see, I don't believe that libraries should be drab places where people sit in silence, and that's been the main reason for our policy of employing wild animals as librarians."
-- Graham Chapman, Episode Ten, Monty Python's Flying Circus

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."
--Groucho Marx

"He understood it to be another deep nudge from forces unseen, almost surely connected with the letter that had come along with his latest mental-disability check, reminding him that unless he did something publicly crazy before a date now less than a week away, he would no longer qualify for benefits."
--Thomas Pynchon, Vineland, P.3

"I went to the library, and books are free."
--Glenn Beck

About my libraryI have eventually moved to make a concerned effort to list all of the books I own, but it will probably not be complete until I move from my current home and pack up all my books. Such is the yolke bibliophiles labour under.
