My library shelves are stacked with my favorite books — some old, some new, all of them wonderful. There’s a bit of something mysterious in this photo, if you’ll take a closer look, and that’s why I’m posting the following quote today:
In books lies the soul of the whole Past Time:
the articulate, audible voice of the Past,
when the body and material substance of it
has altogether vanished like a dream.
~Thomas Carlyle, (1795 – 1881), Scottish philosopher
