Wednesday in Wyoming -- July 18, 2012

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?

  1. I suppose I could live without books, if my life depended on it. But only because my mind has already read and digested thousands of books, and thoughts and themes have been reposited there for future reflection.
