A Quote by John Milton on books, death, life, and soul

Books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them.

John Milton (1608 - 1674)
