A Quote for Tuesday

“I think Emerson wrote somewhere that a library is a kind of magic cavern which is full of dead men. And those dead men can be reborn, can be brought to life when you open their pages.”

Jorge Luis Borges, This Craft of Verse (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 2000), 3.
