Let yourself be found by a book.
Without books, history is silent, literature dumb,
science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
Without books, the development of civilization
would have been impossible.Books are engines of change,
windows on the world,
"lighthouses" (as a poet said)
"erected in the sea of time".
They are companions, teachers, magicians,
bankers of the treasures of the mind.Books are humanity in print.
Barbara Tuchman, Historian, Pulitzer Prize Winner
