Favorite Quote:
"We have nothing to fear but fear itself." -FDR

I love the purr of pages,
and the musk that is their perfume,
Loud silence of words printed,
and the dead ideas exhumed.
So crack their spines
and stretch their pages,
and take your book for a good read.

I love reading old books. They all have their own story to tell.

"Loud silence of words printed"  Wow.  Such simple words to express such a profound thought.
