Barbara W. Tuchman

Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Without books, the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are engines of change, windows on the world, and (as a poet has said) "lighthouses erected in the sea of time." they are companions , teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.

Barbara W. Tuchman
