"A book is the only place in which you can
examine a fragile thought without breaking it,
or explore an explosive idea without
fear it will go off in your face...
one of the few havens remaining where
a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy."
by:
Charles Langbridge Morgan
(1894-1958) British Author
