Except a living man there is nothing
more wonderful than a book!
A message to us from the dead,
– from human souls whom we never saw,
who lived perhaps thousands of miles away;
and yet these, on those little sheets of paper,
speak to us, teach us, comfort us,
open their hearts to us as brothers.
– Charles Kingsley (1819-1875)
