A Quote by Norman Cousins on birth, books, fame, history, ideas, libraries, life, literature, metaphor, and worship
The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's one devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life.
