Today’s Quote, 16 January 2017

A glorious description of how much books matter from an Old English poem:

“Books are glorious … They gladden the heart of every man amid the pressing miseries of this life. Bold is he who tastes the skill of books; he will ever be the wiser who has command of them. They send victory to the true-hearted, the haven of salvation for those who love them.”

from Solomon and Saturn
