Books, Books and Books



Erasmus is quoted as saying: “When I get a little money, I buy books; if any is left, I buy food and clothes”.

Gracian Balthazar said: “Spend first third of your life with the dead; the next third with the living and the final third with yourself”. (He meant authors from the past)

Petrarch is quoted as follows: “…gold, silver, jewels and other things offer a mutable and superficial pleasure. But, books delight us to the very marrow of our bones. They speak to us and join with us in a living, intense intimacy”.

I, for one, agree with these sentiments about books.
