My 2 favorite book quotes thus far are as follows (the 2nd one is a part of
"It now became apparent
(despite the lack of library paste)
that something had
happened to the vicar;
guns began to go off in the distance."
Harold B. Lee Library
Brigham Young University
("Honestly, what is it about them
that bothers you so much?"
"Computers don't smell, Rupert."
"...Smell is the most powerful trigger
to the memory there is. A certain
flower or a whiff of smoke can bring
up experiences long forgotten. Books
smell musty and rich. The knowledge
gained from a computer has no texture,
no context. It's there and then it's
gone. If it's to last, then the getting
of knowledge should be tangible. It
should be smelly."
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
