"Books support us in our solitude and keep us from being a burden to ourselves." Jeremy Collier

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity ... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance." A. E. Newton

"The library is a great labyrinth .... You enter and you do not know whether you will come out." Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose
