A Quote by Emily Dickinson on books, spirit, and words

He ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book.  What liberty
A loosened spirit brings!

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
