One exterior wall of the Laramie County Library in Cheyenne is decorated with a series of book-related quotations. It was hard to choose a favorite, but this one won. I like the way Eliot expresses the many things books can do for us, including entertaining and informing, and -- of course -- I like the fact that he was eloquent in doing so.
Like Thomas Jefferson, I cannot live without books. Can you? If not, why not?
