Qualities of the book



"Lord!" he said, "when you sell a man a book you don't sell him
just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue -- you sell him a
whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea
by night -- there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book
I mean."
...............Chistopher Morley, _Parnassus on Wheels_, 1917.
